Im honoured to be curating and taking part in this innovative new event that will be taking place at Butley Priory in Suffolk, UK,  the fabulous 14C Augustinian Abbey founded in 1117  (www.butleypriory.co.uk)

American poet and writer Genevieve Katherine will lead a 45 minute walk around the Priory grounds and ruins, with short intervals for readings of her new works, some poems being especially written for the occasion, Geneviève is a spoken word artist who works from nature, ritual, and the simple truths of our mundane and mythic existence. She looks forward to inviting and invoking you amongst this magical landscape.

Then it’s back to the log fire in the Great Hall, for an improvised performance on two pianos and various keyboards  and computers by myself and extraordinary soundscape artist Matthew Bickerton (www.matthewbickerton.com)   The incredible stone vaulted Great Hall will become an installation in itself with film projection and lighting accompanying the music.

The aim of both poetry and musical performances will be to respond to, capture, and express in the various mediums of the artists, the magical and spiritual atmosphere of this 12 Century site,  at the darkest, most still, and most regenerative time of the year leading up to the Winter Solstice.  Please come and join us!
