Since April 2016 I have worked on developing my POETRY, SPOKEN WORD PERFORMANCES both as a one woman show and with my co-performer JOAN ELLIS.
My one woman show has included performing in Bournemouth/Poole, Southsea at the Front Room, Tongues and Grooves, Portsmouth, Wight Words, Newport and the ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 2016 and 2017 in the newly established pulpit.
With Sue Bevan as 2 OLD BAGS we performed at the Wandsworth festival -such mayhem and creative chaos packed within 1 hour.
Most of my shows have been with Joan Ellis, writer and performer of exceptional skills.
Together we have performed at a fund raising event for VECTIS RADIO, NEWPORT; the VENTNOR FRINGE 2016 and 2017; the ISLE OF WIGHT 2016 literary event and HASTINGS FRINGE 2017.
Our 2016 show was Them 2-navy knickers and nicked tv's.
Our 2017 show is Them 2- fake fur, false teeth and true love.
Although we have worked in very different professions-Joan within the advertising world as a copy writer and myself as a community based youth worker we have strong connections with our upbringing and seeing the dysfunctional aspects of our childhoods.
Our performances intertwine seamlessly with humour, pathos, craziness and imagination.
