Triumph Joy & Elation Public Reading New Choreopoem by Writer Carol Leeming

Character Maz TTLDV Digital image Thursday Oct 2 2nd 2014 proved to be an auspicious date to for the new  choreopoem -a dramatic monologue ‘Love the life you lie..Live the life you love .. written by Carol Leeming, a Creative Writing commission for Centre for New Writing Leicester University  part of the Affective Digital Histories Project.  Held at Embrace Arts, the event  fell on National poetry day and was part of Leicester’s Everybodys Reading Festival and Black History Season. Tickets for the event  were booked out well in advance, with a standby waiting list, such was the  level interest in this new written work.  A diverse audience were riveted for about an hour and after a short break there was a very lively Q & A  chaired by Bobba Bennett (Pinggg…K & Fall  Live literature Curator)  focused  around character voice, social issues raised, magic realism and sense of place. Also  what the next steps might be for Dare to Diva company in terms of further development/production, of this compelling narrative e.g..a play or a film etc along with feedback forms, which the audience  completed and were then collected.Read a review here:
