From Me To Us (Audio Performance)
I can't pinpoint the exact moment that I realised I wanted to have children. I think, maybe, I'd just always put it to the back of my mind. Because I was single. Because I was gay. I mean, they are two fairly big barriers to traditional conception. I just don't think I ever really gave it that much thought. Perhaps I just presumed that I wouldn't, couldn't even.
Must keep in line. Must play normal. Must follow the rules...
A playful and poignant performance letter to a future child from their future father.
From Me to Us is an important project that provides the space for discussions about parenthood, in all its many guises, whilst documenting political change against the backdrop of autobiographical experience.
Manifest of the Seas
The second book in the trilogy of metamodern novels.
A horn blasts and I find myself in the middle of the ocean, onboard a luxurious all-inclusive cruise ship. Everything should be incredible, yet something isn't right, something is wrong. Whilst the sun shines, and the drinks flow, and the strangers strangers around me are enjoying their trip, I am growing more and more unnerved, unbalanced, disconnected, and the kind woman I have befriended at the dinner table knows a little bit too much about my life. More than me. As we sail forward into the silence, I begin to remember. But I don't know how I got here, nor am I sure how long we've been at sea. And more worryingly, I have absolutely no idea where we are heading.
Even when you've met the characters before, there are some stories that have a life of their own. In another place.
