An Empty Room, Written & Performed by Kay Greyson  

 “I started rapping when I was six years old after my mum had bought me a Walkman and a Dionne Warwick CD.” An autobiographical story about Kay’s career, looking at one of her best but also worst ever gigs, featuring live music.

“I would travel down to hell and wrestle a film away from the devil if it was necessary” – Werner Herzog 

  

‘I’m a film fan. Okay the whole world is. But I’m really good at it. There’s nothing better. You can just sit and zone out. What I’m less good at…is the rest of it.’ 

  

Pause is an uplifting love story about film and how we use it to make day-to-day blockbusting escapes. 

  

‘Alright, my life might not feature kissing in the snow, or racing to airports. But it might just include zombies or sharks or learning how to find friendship, even if it is just with yourself.’
