Guest: Peter John Cooper
Timo meets a poet, playwright and producer with over forty years of work published and performed – who is, he says: “Drawn to the edges”. Known for his experimental work, Peter describes poetry as: “a form of madness. It makes us say things we didn’t know we wanted to say.”
Rooted in the central south, he describes himself as: “As English as it gets” and learned some of his early art skills in the Hampshire Drama Centres. Today with over thirty plays recorded on the Doollee Database of UK produced playwrights, author of several books and essays around the poetry, Peter has has also worked extensively with Adults with Learning Disabilities and has been part of ACDC European initiative on Arts for Excluded Groups.
“I live in a liminal world between Poetry, playwriting and Being” he says. “Between Contentment and complete disaster. Between the Library and the Launderette. Between Life and Death” and he took Mr Peach on a personal walk of art that wasn’t very far at all, to his walking circle.
