& THE TONGUE FU BAND
'PESSIMISM IS FOR LIGHTWEIGHTS'
Something new and something joyous for the weekend - Salena Godden performing this poetry anthem in true Salena style with 200 people singing and dancing along. In Chris' words from the end of the video 'It's a poetry gig what else did you expect?'
This was an improvisation and collaboration with The Tongue Fu Band as part of our National Poetry Day Livestream from Arnolfini, Bristol, commissioned by #spacearts
