National Poetry Day Event - Carnegie Library - 5th October 2013

Autumn Readings

To help celebrate National Poetry Day, the Carnegie Library at Herne Hill invited five poets to tea on Saturday 5 October 2013: Kate with Wendy French, Jenny Hobson, Helen Adie and John Mackinnon: and together they read for an hour to a wonderful audience on the linked themes of London and water.National Poetry Day event 2013

Kate reads the part of the mother of a disturbed teenager in Wendy French’s short play for voices “The Furry Dance” to be performed by members of the same group at ‘Beyond Words’, Gipsy Hill Tavern, SE19, on 5 November 2013 at 7pm.

By popular request, returning to the BELL library at Beaumont de Venise, Provence on Wednesday 16 October, she will lead a writing afternoon for poets at all levels writing in English.

Profil perdu

Homage to HepworthPerformed at the Homage to Hepworth on 10th January, 2013, Kate’s poem profil perdu after Hepworth’s Two Forms Divided Circle, originally a sonnet, has been shaped and can be watched as it disappears, on the “profil perdu” page.

Thanks to Trevor Moore for the powerpoint from which the “code” was developed and to Herb Miller, who animated the poem.

The dance piece The Empty Shoes choreographed by Nyron Levy and filmed on the site of the sculpture in Dulwich Park by Andy Humphreys is now on Youtube
