In 2017, Jordan Prosser and I headed to the Peak District in the UK to record an EP of video poems. These 14 pieces were recorded on the moors and gritstone boulders of Kinder Scout and Kinder Downfall, and they’re… well, a lot of them are about death, honestly. One of those weekends.
I’ve included two of my favourites here, but you can see the whole selection at peakdistrictep.com.
With the One-Take-Wonder-Girls (aka the Sipat Lawin Ensemble), I put together this one-take mash-up of Filipino poetry, folk music and Pinoy pop in an effort to win myself a spot on GMA’s Foreignoy reality TV show. Of course, there’s something questionable about auditioning for a show that no longer exists, so maybe it’s closer to how Carlos Celdran described it, as ‘an artistic intervention’. Either way, it’s a total sugar-rush of Pinoy pop culture, and I’m really proud of it. Dig.
Since 2012, Too Many Weapons (myself, Sam Burns-Warr, Georgie McAuley and Jordan Prosser) have been recording a series of video spoken-word performances wherever we’ve been on tour. The whole series is available here, with something like 30 entries at last count (including guest appearances by our friends and lovers). Mad shout out to Sam Burns-Warr in particular here, for editing each and every one of these. Here are four of mine.
Since 2006, the science-theatre ensemble of myself, Mick Bailey, Rachel Roberts, Jack Lloyd, Nikki Kennedy, Nathan Harrison and David Shaw has produced an array of interactive science-based performances. Selected projects:
