A wonderful evening with life-long friends, Allie Esiri and Helena Bonham Carter, as they shared their South Hampstead story illustrated by a ‘desert island’ selection of poetry.
‘Poetry will stay with you for life. We use it to help us come to terms with the big things in life: love, friendship, loss, nature, beauty and the passing of time’
It is for evenings like this one that we intend to create a fitting stage. If you would like to help us please visit our support us page and join us in creating the next generation of great performers.
A poem about performing
There is quite a difference between being entertained,
It's very similar to the art of writing.
And there is an 'art' to it.
There has to be a love connection.
An emotional committment.
A joy that is heartfelt.
And a devotion that is inseparable.
If those factors aren't there...
Becoming a critic is less involving.
And requires far less talent!
Being able to use one's body and mind,
Is a gift.
Especially if one has to tolerate...
The creativity expressed coming from critic's lips.
