This Friday, I’ll be taking part in the second Trans-Lament at the Lubber Fiend in Newcastle. At the invitation of Kiik Amor, I’ll be trying out something new. To open the night, I will read John Donne’s 1633 poem “The Sun Rising”, followed by a poem of my own about Donne, Derek Jarman’s garden, the sun and queer time, based on the final chapter of my latest book, Narcissus in Bloom.

Welcome to the abyss of trans-sonic storytelling. TRANS-LAMENT 2 is presented as a theatrical performance platform for musical storytelling, improvisation, alternative / queer histories, dualities, world-melding performances and experimental DJ sets; a theatrical speed date in the land of future folklore tales, epic neo-mediaeval bards and trans-sonic unfoldings.
