My journey with my poetry collection For You Or Someone Like You and the performances that I have been doing around it has been an exhilarating and terrifying one. And the last Johannesburg performance is on Saturday 1 December at 2pm at Love Books, The Bamboo centre, Melville.
When I idly decided I would step on stage as a solo performer with my own material, I calmly forgot how exposing, nerve-wracking and labour intensive the process is. (Despite the fact that I coach people about this stuff every week!) Saturday will be my 16th performance and may last public one for 2012 in Johannesburg.
It would really mean a lot to me to see a whole pile of faces in Love Books to see this last show. I have learned so much through the preceding 15 performances and grown so much. For those of you who witnessed the shaky starts and baby steps, I would love for you to see where it has gotten.
Also, Saturday will be more than just a live music performance. More than just a poetry reading. More than just a talk. It will a woven together story that uses all of the above to describe this amazing arc the last 5 months have taken me on.
I will be asking anyone who is there to ask questions if they want AND as a thank you to everyone who does turn up and buy a copy of For You Or Someone Like You, I will be giving away a FREE copy of the CD to every person who does.
The Service Station next door will be open, so come for lunch and then enjoy the show afterwards.
So please do come along, the details are all below. Would mean a lot to me to see a whole bunch of people there to mark the end of this part of the adventure for 2012!
