& introduction from Holly Pester

A poet never before hosted in the UK, a travelling artist who may not be fully named, and a performer fresh from a 24hour journey. Join us in celebrating the comedy of their spoken words and their divine proximity.

Shiv Kotecha is a New York poet and the author of EXTRIGUE (Make Now Books 2015), OUTFITS (Troll Thread, 2012) and PAINT THE ROCK (Troll Thread, 2011). Other work can be found at Gauss PDF and elsewhere online. He completes tasks for Collective Task and is currently a Ph.D. Candidate at NYU. Instagram @heyguyhere

Emma Bennett is a performance artist and theorist of (stand-up)comedy, and researching for a PhD in Performance Studies at Queen Mary’s, University of London. She has presented her textual, video and performance work in a variety of contexts across the UK and Europe.

Becky La M’eh’rr is an artist and writer currently based in a small Canadian town. She has published and performed her texts and left piles of her books in Berlin, China, London, New York, Vancouver, Vienna, and probably a few other places that she’s forgotten either through deliberate effort or error.
