Love_Songs and Poems Ed2016

David Lee Morgan’s intimate show takes you on very personal tour of one man’s life-long experience of love. His poetry brims with romantic imagery, guiding the audience on a poignant journey through the love stories that have shaped his life. His performance is full of passion, as his movements connect with the emotions his words express. Morgan compartmentalises his poems into three sections, about heartbreak, being in love and depression. Unfortunately, his poetry is slightly one-dimensional, with the bulk of his focus on more depressing, dark verse, making the subject of love seem too narrow a focus for an hour long show. ‘Love: Songs and Poems’ is one for the broodier types.

Banshee Labyrinth, until 28 Aug.
