pumped to be in London soon for two exciting events, both hosted by the great poet/writer/artist SJ Fowler. we have been working together in the virtual realm for the past half year on fresh texts and songs. looking forward to joining forces live !

Austrian Cultural Forum, October 10th, 19.30

Illuminations V: Ingeborg Bachmann // presents new pieces of literary art and performance responding to the life and work of Ingeborg Bachmann, one of Europe’s most iconoclastic literary figures in the post-war era. Driven by a singular poetic voice, Bachmann’s poetry and writings have been a touchstone for 20th century explorations of truth and the interplay between the oppressively political and the explicitly personal.

Featuring new work by Ana Schnabl, Emily Critchley, Han Smith, Karen Leeder, Andrea Capovilla and myself.

i had a wonderful summer season filled with lots of fun festivals, including City Proms, Holland Festival, Oranjewoud, Grachtenfestival, BAR|A|MUZE, Havikfestival, and Gaudeamus. a personal highlight for me was Wonderfeel. My set there was reviewed super generously by Classical Source :

…”Hearing the violinist Diamanda La Berge Dramm was a revelation. Petite and barefoot (I discovered why later in her set), she cuts a potent presence”…
