Marcus Reeves

SIGHS TEN is an hour of spoken word and music written and performed by Marcus Reeves. The pointed and playful piece reflects on themes of love, lust, loss and loneliness, featuring original poems and songs. ‘Monetising his misery’, Marcus leads us on a darkly comic journey through twenty-first century love and sex, re-affirming his position as ‘a remarkably versatile man of words and music’ (Beige Magazine).

'...a collection that is at times tender, others brutal, and when at its best caustically funny... Reeves is a captivating presence, filling his songs and poetry with sadness and longing and a stinging sense of humour. The work is visceral, and he pulls no punches ... ‘Sighs Ten’ is a body of work that shines a light on the dark side of the modern gay dating scene, and exposes the pain and heartbreak behind the sex.' The LGBTQ Arts Review

SIGHS TEN is available for touring dates throughout 2017. For further details, to watch or hear the full show or read the script, email
