Genny and I took part in an online cabaret evening on Instagram Live called Quarantine Cabaret on Sat 11 April. Genny was on Zoom and I was ‘in charge’ of the livestream. Hosted by Cameron Foster, the set list included poet Gray Crosbie and musician Hailey Beavis.
We each read several poems, with mine being Animal Crossing, The Immortal Jellyfish, I Give You A Shelf, Let’s Have A Year Together, an early version of Learning To Crawl, and Dungarees, and Genny’s being Missing You, She’s In A Band, A Stop Gap Is Never A Bad Thing, I Made You A Playlist and Driving in a Fiat 500.
Here’s Genny’s perspective of our set (I wish she’d told me my phone was in my face):
Watch @quarantinecabaret on Instagram Live every Saturday from 7.30pm & donate to the crowdfunder if you can, so that the performers taking part can get paid.
