While in Kraków she is working on "Replaying the Tape", a collaboration with palaeontologist Dr Frankie Dunn and percussionist Dr Jane Boxall, which will premiere in New York in November 2023.

About the project:
Replaying the Tape is my collaboration with women practitioners: Oxford University palaeontologist Dr Frankie Dunn and New York-based composer Dr Jane Boxall. We will conjure an imaginary menagerie of animals which might have existed had the dice-throw of evolution fallen differently. I am writing a series of poems based on Frankie’s research on the Ediacaran biota, using forms appropriate to each lifeform: much of Frankie’s work is in establishing precedents for alternative body plans. The tape aspect will include field recordings from Frankie’s geological fieldwork, tape manipulation of found sounds, and excerpts from research and altered samples from the new poetry itself. The live percussion part will have choreographic and visual elements.
