A departure this month. Follow the link to the Red Ensemble video of their interpretation of my poem Right. The ensemble used a recording of my recitation of the poem and Palestinian poet Ghazi Husseinâ€™s recording of his Arabic translation as part of their improvisation. The piece was recorded at Glasgow City Halls.
The accompanying film features dancer Joan Beattie of the Vito Dance Theatre.
Right was originally published in â€œChapmanâ€ and is in my collection â€œGood Morningâ€œ.
Charlie will perform live with the Red Ensemble on Wednesday 14 September in the City Halls in Glasgow.
They will perform new music, including a specially devised multi-media work, Then I was really tiny, based on a story told by a 3 year old boy to his father.
Using sound, images, dance, music and poetry, the ensemble and Charlie will give a surreal interpretation of the childâ€™s story, revealing their response to entrapment, fear and liberation.
Joan Beattie of The Vito Dance Theatre dances to the performance of Right by the Red Ensemle.
