Hi Gus – you vanished before I could talk to you last night. I did enjoy my Pumphouse experience – love Sali and Dubtxt. You are a very good interviewer, relaxed and easy. But I HATED the footlights. I feel that poetry is very interactive and not to be able to see the audience was very disconcerting. Particularly on Friday, as we had a small intimate audience, and I would love to have been able to see their body language and so on. I can see if it is a huge house it might be different, but with a small house I do like to see my audience. Perhaps I have been spoiled or ruined at Poetry Live and the pub scene!
Also I really enjoyed The White Wall performance. Felt it went so well with Laurence’s music. Well done, and thanks for inviting me.
