about the show
Jade gets at the heroic questions that live inside all of us - but she does it with the direct language and direct experience of our 2020 lives. Her poems invite the audience to see the epic in their personal experiences.
Jade performs three of her poems: HERSTORY, Having to (Bi) and Eggs on Toast.
HERSTORY was commissioned by Audible.
This poetry set was performed live on Zoom on the 1st of July 2020 as part of Greengage's series Two Metres Apart.
In a melodic rhythm Anouka delivers her story of what it means to be a woman, of insecurity and love and lust and manages to take the audience on a journey of strength, weakness, struggle, and devotion. Her words serve as inspiration and a reminder that we are all in this together, we are stronger together and that we need to ‘be the problem that finds the truth’. [...] Two Metres Apart delivers entertainment, unity and a feeling of being able to come together in a space full of creativity, innovation, and power. ★★★★★ A Younger Theatre
