‘Write Way Up’

Seven poets perform new work, inspired by museum artifacts

I’m off to see the above in Leicester tonight. Why? Because my baby sister is one of those seven poets!!

(and I’ve just realised that she is clasping something that looks like either a notebook or a pencilcase)

One ordinary box…seven objects inside…and seven specially commissioned poets to take them out and bring them to life. Prepared to be wowed as live literature collides with music and visuals – and new voices make old things come alive. Handle with care and be sure to hold the ‘Write Way Up’ in this multimedia extravaganza. Directed and mentored by Kevin Fegan. Produced by Pam Thompson for WORD! This night is in partnership with Leicestershire Museums and will explore both artifacts and Olympic values.

I’ll report back when I get back from staying with one of my two sisters (see pic above) who both now live in Nottingham.
