Razzle Dazzle on SoundCloud

Performing 'Razzle Dazzle Cabaret' for film made by Prestonfield School pupils
at Leith Docks in front of the new Dazzle ship designed by Ciara Philllips.

To hear me read, click  Razzle Dazzle Cabaret. This will also lead to all the other recordings too.

Marjorie Lofti Gill's intro to the SoundCloud recordings:

Ciara Phillips’ Every Woman, co-commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival and 14-18 NOW, is the fourth in a series of ‘Dazzle’ ship
designs developed by contemporary artists to commemorate the First World War.
This poem is taken from Signal - a collection of poems written by female writers, edited by Marjorie Lotfi Gill and published by Edinburgh Art Festival. The recording was taken at a public reading of all 20 poems at Edinburgh Bookshop in August 2016.
The word dazzle made Stephanie Green instantly think of the film "Cabaret" and the song "Razzle Dazzle". Her poem is written in the voice of a cabaret artiste.
Copyright of poems rests with individual authors.
