creating pop-up political art spaces to raise awareness and explore issues facing women in our late-50s and 60s. Through performance, poetry, clothes, film, workshops and talks 'Older Women Rock!' celebrates older women, challenges our invisibility, unites us across our differences and subverts assumptions and prejudices about us.
As part of the Triennial Fringe there was a subversive catwalk of ‘Older Women Rock!’ poetry and poetic clothes in the ballroom of the Burstin Hotel Folkestone, followed by a wild tea trolley dance with bMoSo Academy of Song and Dance
Just sending a warm hello from the U.S. It is encouraging to see other, older performance poets with a message that empowers women. I have been following Ms. Thorn’s work and have included her in my sphere of writers who both influence and inspire me. I am an activist/poet living in El Paso, Texas, the daughter of Hungarian refugees and wife of a Chicano. I am very interested in social justice, poetry as therapy etc.
