The All Wales Comic Verse Competition

Yesterday was the launch of the All Wales Comic Verse Competition!On Tuesday I posed for photo's on the steps of the Roman Legionary Museum in Caerleon, Newport. and read the launch poem. As I was a Romano-British Poet, I opted for the socks and sandals combination for which our Nation is renowned!Here's the poem, a pastiche in the style of the Roman satirist, Juvenal:-*****Invocation to the God of Poetry (and Others),(After Juvenal). Hear us, Oh Apollo, (And any other Gods who may be listening,) Save usFrom poets who are po-of-face,Who trap us at their poetry readingsAnd trot out the same old tired tropes.Who cares if OedipusThrew a wobbler over Mommy Dearest,Or if Icarus on his rickety contraptionTook a header into the Aegean?We still have to stub toes kicking for sandals beneath the bed,Eat badly at the wrong end of our Patron’s table,And piddle in the linen bleacher’s trough!What do we care for HeroesWhen we aren’t?When clod-pated Claudius came home triumphantFrom…See More

What I do:
Goff Morgan was born in Newport, and trained at the Welsh college of Music and Drama as an actor. Upon completion of his studies in 1983 he started work as a freelance tutor in Drama and Voice & Speech in Newport Drama Studio. During the 1990's Goff moved onto radio. For two years he was a regular guest on the Mal Pope show on BBC Radio Wales, and wrote Broken Arms stories for BBC Radio Gwent and Red Dragon Radio.

In 1997 Goff was created Newport Town Poet, the only official town poet in Wales. The post finished officially in 2000, but has never really gone away.

Hi Goff

 

Do you know anyone who might want to get involved with my project CareHome Lab? 

 

CareHome Lab is an simulation of a care home bedroom and dayroom, in Newport. It has been set up so that designers and researchers can go through the lab and experience the care home scenario in a way they can not in real life...ie. CRB checks take a while etc...

 

Go here to get more information about the project www.carehomelab.com

 

I am looking for performers to play the residents and staff of the care home. This is an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in a role for (if you want to) up to five hours at a time. Although I am looking for a team of performers to do tag style over the five hours... so you don't have to be performing the whole time. 

 

For residents: I am looking for fit and active performers aged 65+

For staff: I am looking for performers of any age.

As this is a try out for the idea...so I can not offer any renumeration... only film footage of your performance.

 

To find out more about CareHome Lab, please feel free to call me on 07947 363 541

 

Kind regards

Victoria
