A note on: the not-Brexit Camarade at Gulbenkian Foundation

Had a blast opening the unofficial program of the European poetry festival 2019 on the night that was supposed to be the official brexit date in Canterbury, Kent. The Gulbenkian is a special place, a theatre and arts centre on the local uni campus and I brought some local poets and many Euros from London to the cafe space where we presented six new collaborations in pairs.

Plenty of highlights, great to see my old friends, two of the most underrated poets in the UK, Stephen Emmerson and Lucy Harvest Clarke, along with some of the UK’s best non-UK writers like Theo Chiotis, Simona Nastac et al. I also had a blast helping Astra Papachristodoulou and Michal Piotrowski out of their performance with scissors upon tape. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0taEQOyG4vk&t=1s
