CLAIRE POTTER & BRIDGET HAYDEN - Mother to No Swimming Laughing Child - FEF36

Merseyside artist and writer Claire Potter works to blur the line between the written word and performance. Here she performs readings from her book Mental Furniture (VerySmallKitchen, 2014), framed by noise and treatments from Bridget Hayden (Vibracathedral Orchestra et al). Tensely-delivered, visceral monologues referencing violence and sexual abuse with morbid humour, and a raw, harsh sonic setting makes for an intense, uneasy but compelling listen.
