Isadora Vibes aka Katie Grant is a poet, writer, theatre maker and artist. She has written, produced and performed in a number of successful solo and ensemble shows in Bristol, London and Edinburgh. Artistic Director of the award-winning avant-garde punk guerrilla theatre company Dada For Girls, Isadora is currently developing a new show based on the poems in her debut poetry collection ‘soak’ published by Burning Eye Books, September 2018. She lives in Bristol and has two teenage children.
We also have the excellent young poet Simon Murphy.
Bridget Hart is a performance poet who gravitates towards DIY punk as her inspiration and main audience. She has performed across the country, in a variety of both literary and DIY spaces including the Royal Albert Hall, Cheltenham Literature Festival and LOUD Women Fest. She has worked with punk bands and incorporates her poetry into a staple of the UK punk scene. At the same time, Bridget has brought listeners to attentive silence with deftly constructed poems about women’s experiences in real and imagined lives. Her first pamphlet Better Watch Your Mouth was released in 2017 with Burning Eye Books.
Chai For All: Yiddish folk-and theatre songs.
