THE LATE LOVE POEMS FILM PROJECT
Steve’s performances of thirty of his poems are being filmed by Park6 in a range of settings, and will be uploaded to YouTube poem by poem on a weekly basis beginning in July 2015 and culminating with publication of the collection Late Love Poems by Cinnamon Press in January 2016, in time for Valentine’s. There will be a series of live performances in 2016.
The project will be supported by social media partners from the arts, libraries and other community networks to engage with a range of audiences, including people who might like to celebrate second marriages and relationships.
It’s a story of two young people who were together in the Seventies, went their separate ways, made their lives and had their families; and their coming together again in their mid-fifties. The poems carry a charged resonance between past and present. And they come back repeatedly to the idea of a lesson learned late in generosity.
An immediacy of profound physical and emotional celebration, of recovery of something that had been lost, gave wings to the experience of writing the poems.
