“Sounds touch me, and mood is the window of allowance, wide or narrow, to let sound in: my moods are equivalent to what I let myself touch, and be touched by in turn, but also what I have no choice in the matter of being encased in…”

Is it possible to create a poetics of atmosphere as antidote to pre-election and post-Brexit airlessness, moodlessness, and disrepair? Mary Cappello performs a multi-modal reading from her latest collection of essays and experimental prose, Life Breaks In (a mood almanack) with emphasis on sounds and voices as mood generators par excellence. Expect images, music, discussion and unnamed mood shifts. Books will be available for sale (cash only).

Doors will open at 6pm and the event starts at 6.30. The event will finish around 8pm and the venue closes at 8.30. There is no need to print your tickets, as we will have a list on the door.
