Dolly Turing works in poetry, sound, play, ritual, magic. One growing, evolving thing they are working on is Quest)ion), a poetry meets soundscape ritual about what it is to love places: real and imaginary, spirits, stories and nothingness. What responsibilities do our ancestors leave us with? What is belonging? What is ‘home’? The other, Play Stance, explores play as transmutation, metamorphosis and meaning cookery. The two overlap, both with a side of queerness, and invoking of high/hard spirits. They love collaborations, resonance, dissonance, finding new, open, transformative ways to tell stories, and remembering to tell the cosmic joke. Their first pamphlet OH (PARA)COSMIC BEING came out with The Vinter Olympiks in October 2016. They have had work published by Datableed, Hesterglock and Litmus and music out on Contour Records. Their poem The Past’s Future in Ignota’s Spells anthology was described as a “bold anthem”  in The New Statesman (wtf).
