Adrian Slatcher reviews The Other Room 36 – Alec Newman, Nata Raha and Seekers of Lice

Even though the Other Room frequently  features three performers from the more experimental end of the poetry spectrum,
its rare that you can find more than cursory connections between them. On the surface, Alec Newman, Nat Raha and Seekers of Lice (actually a solo artist, called, I think, Anne), hadn’t much in common either but coincidentally all read sequences, and had some element of the improvisational in work that was otherwise very structured.
