Oct 2015 ‘A Reflection’

Standard

Van Gogh Museum performance of the intergenerational words piece The Open Sky with Robyn Haddon and Rory Pilgrim October 2015.

“A Reflection.
The Open Sky is about words and what they mean for different people.
It’s about intergenerational words,

I bring words with me from childhood.
Family words that have stayed with me.
Sometimes these words have got blurred through the years.

There are words I want to term as family words.
There are also words I want to term as friendship words.
Sometimes the words in friendship can mean more to some people than family words because for some, their friends are also their family who they share their lives with.

There’s a four letter word, which is really important – just a four letter word – LOVE.
Carol Robson.

Women’s Space in Spoken Word by Carol Robson.

Standard

Women’s Space in Spoken Word.

I’m here to challenge
for you to listen
hear my voice
hear my inner soul.

Shouting
you need to see me
you need to hear me.

My voice is valuable
my space is valuable
this space is genderless
value the voice
value my words.

My right to occupy
my right to share
my voice is to be heard
my words are priceless
value me
value the person
I’m an equal person
I’m an equal voice.
We gave you a voice
respect ours.

Fringe (2)

PERFORMANCE

How can this be, me
37days, 16 performances
just finding me
poetic verbiage
of a life journey
serious and curious
sense of humour
a little bit of rumour.

From Manchester
to Edinburgh
via Buxton too
certainly hoping
I entertain you.

Take me as I am
as off on the road I’ll go,
certainly this is no sham
it’s a damn interesting show.

Just saying how it is
come see me take the floor,
stirred up words, with such a fizz
performed by the Media Whore.
