Lightfalls, Gillie Robic


The second collection from Gillie Robic

GILLIE ROBIC was born in Bombay, a great love and

abiding influence on her. As was the custom, she was

sent away to school in England, which she found a

difficult transition after the colour and richness of

India. She attended the Sorbonne and L’U.C.A.D. in

Paris, after which she studied Theatre Design at the

Central School of Art in London. As part of the dropout

generation, she completed none of these courses.

After a lot of travelling and different jobs, she became

a puppeteer and voice artist, working in theatre, film

and television, and with her own ad hoc company,

Suspended Animation. She is a performer, designer,

maker, director, teacher and writer. Ten years ago, she

turned to poetry.
