Monologist. Spoken word poet. Queer.

 


NOT Coming to the UK in 2020!

CANCELLED BECAUSE OF YOU KNOW WHAT: My most recent theatrical monologue is coming to the UK in 2020, with stops at the Wandsworth Arts Fringe (May 15 and 16), the Brighton Fringe (May 18 to 24) and the Fringe Theatrefest in Barnstaple, Devon (June 25 to 28).

 

Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous  to poetry.

Thomas Mann, Death in Venice

 

 


SOLITARY LIKE A FOX, the desire to communicate is nevertheless one of my main motivators. Usually, this happens in one-on-one contexts or onstage, but now I'm adding a blog to my repertoire. It's mostly short, idiosyncratic reviews of LGBT-themed books, movies and plays, but occasionally I share more profound thoughts, or even a poem.

J'HABITE AU QUÉBEC, dont la langue est le français. Je fais de mon mieux pour écrire et jouer dans la langue de Proust à la mesure du possible pour un anglophone qui a commencé à parler quotidiennement le français à l'âge de 45. Je serais ravi de recevoir des commentaires dans votre langue, chers lecteurs francophones!
