POETRY AND ALL THAT JAZZ (article first published : 2004-11-4)

On November 10, Gisèle Turner will make a return visit to The Live Poets’ Society after several years’ absence, to present poems from her new collection Breathing Rainbows which is mainly based on dreams. The reading takes place at 17h30 at Adams Books Coffee Shop in Musgrave Centre.

Gisèle Turner is well known for her Jazzeye column in the Daily News, as well as her work as a cultural reporter for Rootz Africa magazine. A former drama teacher, she is also co-director of the educational theatre company Madcaps for which she has devised, directed and performed in over 20 original productions.

It is perhaps less well-known that she also writes evocative poetry. She featured work from her collection My Crazy Heart in the South African Women’s Festival during the millennium celebrations. Two years ago she hosted an evening during Durban’s annual Poetry Africa Festival at The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.

Taking a cue from her jazz interests, the evening’s theme is ”All That Jazz”. Anyone who has written poems which could be linked to that topic is invited to present them. Then during the Poet Pourri section of the get-together, they may air their work on any subject they wish.

Entry is free and all are welcome, regardless of whether they write poetry. Latecomers are advised to bring cushions or folding chairs if they don’t want to sit on the floor.
