Featuring poetry and fiction by Johnny Dean, Rachel Hasson, Sarah Lipton-Sidibeh and Patrick Ofosu, and an interview with Simone Eringfeld about her spoken word/music album ‘Please Hold’. Our performers delve into grief, self-love, and optimism in a series of pieces that range from historical explorations of 19th century Malvern Hills and 1970s Britain, to present day concerns of mental health and job interviews. Created based on interviews conducted during lockdown for ‘Cambridge Quaranchats’, Simone Eringfeld’s album ‘Please Hold’ is a series of data poems investigating the disembodiment, disconnection and fatigue felt during lockdown.
