The Geography of Me


Where in the world is Rose Condo?

'Any audience of hers cannot fail to be charmed by her revealing, thought provoking and funny poems...wonderful in its simplicity!'

Natasha Holmes, Tell Tale Hearts Theatre

The Geography of Me is a solo spoken word show by Canadian performance poet (and self-proclaimed map nerd) Rose Condo, who toured the show to London, Winnipeg and the 2014 PBH Free Fringe in Edinburgh. 


Touting a large suitcase and carting around her own red dot, Rose traces her travels through foreign and familiar lands. In a series of playful poems, Rose takes audiences on a journey through the hilarity and heartbreak of her travels.  


Confessing her love of receiving mail Rose asks audiences to send postcards – conveniently posted from the comfort of their seats – and she reads aloud their memorable moments.


Rose’s quirky Canadian charm will disarm audiences … even the most reluctant armchair traveller will go along for the ride.  


'A brave, lyrical and vivid evocation of displacement, memory, family and lost love. Taken separately each of Rose Condo's poems

tells a great story; presented together and told live by the performer, The Geography of Me becomes a bittersweet & inspiring work of art.'

Susan Burns, Chol Theatre

How To Starve An Artist

Feeding your inner rhyme at a time

'An awakening, soul-resuscitating experience.'

Kent Suss, Manitoba Theatre for Young People, Canada


How To Starve An Artist was voted runner up Best Spoken Word Show for the 2017 Saboteur Awards.  The show features a series of poems and stories exploring ideas around creative nourishment.  Whilst performing, Rose simultaneously prepares and serves food to the audience.  She engages them in ideas about how to be more creatively nourished and invites them to reflect on feeding their own inner artists.  

Rose premiered the show at the 2016 PBH Free Fringe in Edinburgh. She has gone on to tour the show around the UK, including Lancaster, York, Durham, Blackpool, Lincoln, and sold out shows at Huddersfield's Lawrence Batley Theatre.  The show earned a four-star review at the 2017 Winnipeg Fringe Festival in Canada, where it was also listed in UMFM's top ten shows of the festival.


‘A beautiful exploration of nourishment -

both nutritional and soulful.  There was a real sense of togetherness,

as we all sat together and ate, listening to amazing, emotional poetry.’ 

Emma Whitehall, Writer & Poet


'Generous in every sense of the word;  she shared poems and food

with her audience, and her stage with other performers.

An excellent display of her talent as a spoken word artist.'
