We are a-flutter to announce the beginnings of our new touring poetry show: What Days We're Having Now:
Working with poets Alex MacDonald, Ella Frears and Will Harris, a pile of poems and a tangle of stage lights, Jaybird Live Literature will create its first show aimed specifically at 16-25 year olds. Navigating adolescence can be hard: sometimes a poem is the best map.
We're very grateful for the Arts Council support which underpins our touring work, and are looking forward to getting back on the road in Autumn 2018. Our rehearsals start shortly, and the tour will last till Spring 2019. Our title comes from a line in Alex' poem 'Gigantic Days' which will be included in the show.
Many of our venues and partners are in place already, but there will be space for a few more bookings. Show specifications will follow as we finalise the production, but if a poetry show for young people is a fit for your festival, venue, school or college, do drop us a line.
