POETRY // TEXT // PERFORMANCE
________________________________________________________________________________________

It's about time Newcastle had a semi-regular night for poetry and at last it has arrived....

Acts
--------------------------------------------
Rebecca Wilcox and Sarah Rose
Frances Kruk
Ed Luker


£3 Entry


Rebecca Wilcox & Sarah Rose, currently based in Glasgow, will deliver 'Playing Knots...', a reading of R. D. Laing’s ‘Knots’ as a unique staging. 'Playing Knots...' explores the suppressive aspects of rendering text into performance.


“They are playing a game. They are playing at not playing a game. If I show them I see they are, I shall break the rules and they will punish me. I must play their game, of not seeing I see the game.”


Excerpts of their work are available here:

Frances Kruk is a Polish/Canadian poet based in London. She has been writing and performing poetry for over a decade. Her most recent book, 'Dwarf Surge', was released yt communications at the end of last year. The book is, in part, an uncompromising exploration of the body as object. Frances is a captivating reader and we are truly lucky to have her.

Excerpts from 'Dwarf Surge' are available here:

Ed Luker will be launching ‘Peak Return’, recently published on Shit Valley, a collection of his least bad work to date. As well as expelling selections from his book onto an unwilling public, he hopes to read some new poetry.

“Ed Luker’s hi-score on Donkey Kong Jr. became an obsolete metaphor of cultural capital when the banks crashed sometime last semester. He has since been taking legal advice from the board of Jazz Pharmaceuticals and has accordingly replaced his holodeck with three seashells of nominal breadth, each representing, via a curious system of bulbs and splash-panels, myriad neo-imperialist speech impediments which Ed is fluent in de-cathecting. His neon contrast bulk is song consistent.” – Hi Zero.

Excerpts of his work are available here:

£3 entry.

Organised by Ed Luker, with Dawn Bothwell and Paul Becker from The Northern Charter.
