Today in Bath:

Quote:
PJ Harvey really brought the Dorset Magic to Bath today Komedia Bath and what an astounding experience it was! Big thank you to Max Porter for giving us that extra insight into the inspiration behind Orlam.

The atmosphere was cold and ere, almost hypnotic, each eye fixed on the poet. We were no longer in the main room of Komedia, but had somehow transcended into the world of a Dorset fairy-tale. Utterly bewildered by this magnificent array of music, art and poetic literature we were but envious that childhood magic had been captured so perfectly within the pages of this book.

‘I wanted to collapse those boundaries of eras and the past, present and future. You’re not quite sure what era you’re in. It’s almost futuristic, questioning whether the ghosts are really ghosts.’

“Being a creative artist, I haven’t had boundaries and you need to have that freedom to create song, poem etc. The imaginative world is not separated from my real world.”

A separate topic from Orlam I realize, but just FYI: someone who attended the reading in Bath reported Polly said she’d be playing London in September or October next year in support of her new album.

^ Yay, good news!

Here's one more picture from Polly's socials:

Spoiler! :

Judging from some comments I've read online, the reading was accompanied by some sort of 'ambient soundtrack' in the background and Polly's illustrations on the screen.

Any indication of whether there will be book signings at these readings?

Judging from the attendees' pictures on Instagram and Twitter, Polly did sign the books so I assume it's very likely for the upcoming events as well.
