An (early) evening with Kate Fox

School of Arts Research Clusters 'Identities, Politics and the Arts' and 'Performance and Theatre' present: An (early) evening with Kate Fox

Kate Fox tells us on her website: I AM NOT THE KATE FOX THE SOCIAL ANTHROPOLOGIST WHO WROTE WATCHING THE ENGLISH. NOT HER, NO. DO NOT GET IN TOUCH TO ASK ME TO TALK ABOUT WHY ENGLISH PEOPLE QUEUE AND DRINK TEA. THOUGH I HAVE THOUGHTS ON THIS AND MANY OTHER THINGS.

Kate Fox will be sharing some of these thoughts and others with us on Tuesday 13th November 5-7pm in the Aphra, plentiful wine, nibbles, poetry and wit, followed by a Q&A.

Kate Fox works mainly as a stand-up poet. She has made two comedy series called The Price of Happiness for Radio 4 about things she's supposed to want but doesn't. She has been Poet in Residence for the Great North Run, Glastonbury Festival and Radio 4's Saturday Live, and worked extensively facilitating writing and performing projects for schools, community groups and festivals. She has performed her poetry on BBC1 and BBC2 as well as numerous radio shows. She has supported acts including Linton Kwesi Johnson, Hollie McNish, John Cooper Clarke and John Hegley and is a headline act in her own right. She is currently working on a show for the Great Exhibition of the North, about sung and unsung Northern women, called "Where There's Muck, There's Bras". In 2018 she completed a PhD at the University of Leeds about class, gender, Northern Englishness and stand-up and has published several academic papers and book chapters on comedy and performance.
