Lynn, Mata Hari and three Rebs: “Words on Edge” at Cafe Meow Wednesday 15 February

This Wednesday nite 15 February at 7.30 at Cafe Meow you can be literate and watch (for free!) Amy Brown, Lynn Jenner and Aleksandra Lane join NZ Poet Laureate Ian Wedde in a relaxed but edgy take on poetry “Words on Edge” as part of the Fringe Festival.

Some may recall that Lynn Jenner, author of the award winning poetry volume Dear Sweet Harry worked with the Rebs in a poetry reading with music at the now defunct Ruby Lounge.  Lynn will perform a new work The life and death of Mata Hari in 12 minutes. This features Klezmer Rebs musos Rose O’Hara on piano, Heather Elder on violin and David Weinstein, guitar and vox. Lynn will read her work to the musical backing of klezmer tunes from the Klezmer Rebs repetoire including a new composition by Heather.

Come along and be arty and edgy, and be moved by Mata Hari’s story through Lynn’s beautiful language.
