Mansfield – In Her Own Words is a concert of selected poems by Katherine Mansfield, set to contemporary music composed by several of our leading songwriters and recording artists including Lawrence Arabia, Julia Deans, The Bats, Mel Parsons, and French for Rabbits.

Twelve tracks by 12 different composers with a multi-band format, on and off for a song each, linked by a curated selection of Katherine Mansfield’s letters. The companion album, Mansfield, is out physically and digitally Feb 20, 2020.

"Her letters show her deadly serious, warm and friendly, cynical and sarcastic, absurd and loving, morbid, though human in conforming to the recipient’s wishes and expectations… one has to beware of the casual, jejune, utterances, which are merely thrown off…."

**Note: Children under 3 years will not be permitted entry into the performance. Show is recommended for ages 13+. Children aged 14 and under must be accompanied by a caregiver who attends the event with the child.
