One of my favourite spoken word poets, Sarah Kay, has a new book out, No Matter the Wreckage. She turned up in the TED app one evening with a talk that received two standing ovations - she performed “B”. Her poetry throws me into a different world - one of dreams and visions and colours. And the pause that she gives every line, creates so much feeling in her performances.
She had a book release party at Joe’s Pub in NYC which was live streamed. If you haven’t heard her, I’d recommend it. Don’t have to stay for the whole show, but her poem “Pause” is really quite good. Youtube
A short film that will break your heart. Shot and coloured so well. Completely worth the 12 minutes.
