Emma has big bathtubs as eyes. Holly makes bikini bread. The Basset Hound is coming along. Excellent Moth Eats Poetry makes sites of flourishing rackets and companionship. It performs friendship as a co-hallucinatory technology, realised in shared images, intuitions, jokes and ventriloquisms.

Presented a Word Gulch, a night of performances with Sian Robinson Davies,Mr. Ferris,Reet Maff’l and hosted by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau.
Filmed at the Chapelle des Petits-Augustins at the Beaux-Arts de Paris, 22nd October 2015 for Voices of Urgency, a cycle of seminars and discussions relating to poetry and the social sciences. Presented by FIAC, in association with the École nationale supérieur des beaux-arts de Paris and the Maison de la Poésie. Devised and orchestrated by Alex Cecchetti, Voices of Urgency invites the public to four events where poetry lies at the heart of the discussion, in direct confrontation with art and other forms of contemporary thought.
For this night, we were asked to talk and write around the phrase ‘we are’, so we wrote a short play about ethics, comedy and female friendship.
