Lost in Spaces

Hastings-based Penny Pepper – performer, singer and political activist on behalf of disabled people – has recently aired her latest show, Lost in Spaces. Witty, gritty and subversive, the performance charts her life to date. Based on the journals she has kept so meticulously since childhood, the spoken word blends seamlessly with poetry and music, while photos provide a visual narrative. Cathy Simpson was lucky enough to attend the première at the Soho Theatre, London.

Penny Pepper: writer, poet, activist, performer

Penny Pepper’s writing focuses on the exploration of difference and diversity, and unpicking the irresistible dark underbelly to life. Genre-defying and quirky, her work is infused with her passion as a veteran inclusive arts activist. She’s currently working on the final draft of her novel Fancy Nancy, and keeps the creative buzz going by writing flash fiction and planning her memoir ‘First in the World, Somewhere’. HOT’s Xaverine Bates caught up with her armed with some questions.
