In partnership with Apples and Snakes, Bristol Students' Union presents Raise The Bar, their spoken word event featuring a performance by Jean 'Binta' Breeze.
‘The third world girl, at home for a while, sets these attractivepoems in rural Jamaica. Her verandah looks out on the sea, and she goes for a swim most mornings. The collection takes us well beyond the village, the bar across the road, and the men who proposition her. The easy-going voice talks of personal development, celebrates friends and family, comments on mortality, freedom, gender and class. The poet is examining, subtly, a more or less contented return to where her life began.’ – Mervyn Morris
