We’re star-crossed lovers you and me
I wish I’d met you when I was less restless
When I was thirty-three
Or fifty-seven
Or sixty-five
Or eight-nine
Or on my deathbed

So I could promise you the rest of my life and mean it
So the only thing that could do us part
Would be my own mortality

Sweet and deadly
It’s doomed affair,
Glasgow and I

[A Roman Skyline is a live gig, where the fickle singer grapples with a family history of forever moving on and never staying put, while resisting against the pull to fall in love with the city of Glasgow.]

Kate Bradley

Kate Bradley (they/them) is a poet, songwriter, and performance artist from Gateshead, now based in Glasgow.

Sound driven, and rooted in a folk approach to storytelling, Bradley’s work revolves around themes of regional and queer identities, loss and grief, and finding home. Home grown at open mics in local Geordie pubs, Bradley’s poetic voice is grounded and captivating.

In 2022, Bradley won the ECG Poetry Competition with their original piece In the Busy Silence, now featured on the Field Ramble podcast, alongside a score by Spencer Mason. They regularly perform at intimate venues in Glasgow, and co-host Tasseomancy’s relaunch, leading poetry workshops.

At the RCS, they create works ranging from a satirical, devised show MANDATE to almost blue, a site-specific spoken word piece inspired by Sappho at Jupiter Artland.

Into the New 2024

This performance is part of Into the New, a festival of contemporary performance made in Glasgow. Into the New showcases the work by the final year BA (Hons) Contemporary Performance Practice students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
