Kay Monrose Interview June 2013

If you had one year to live how would you spend your time?

I’d travel obviously, I’d like to help some people in third world countries, maybe utilize my skills and teach them out to cook and hula hoop, just get something fun over wherever I can. I’d DEFINETLY start performing, stop work and set up a cake business.

I think I’d buy a nice sports car. and a horse.

What is the meaning of life to you?

Ack, this is too hard a question. I mean in most ways the meaning of life is to reproduce, have kids bla bla. The meaning of life to people personally, I don’t know, I couldn’t say one thing. I hate it when people ask that question actually, cos one person’s meaning of life is different to someone elses.

What do you love most about your life?

I get to be surrounded by a lot of talented people and beautiful things, that I get to have a lovely roof over my head with my boyfriend. The fact that I get to practise an amazing art form [aerial hoop], and even if I’m not aware of it all the time there’s plenty of people who care about me.

What have been your highlights of 2013 so far?

I think Dr Sketchys [Burlesque life drawing event in Nottingham], because my boyfreind and a very old friend of ours who’s been away for years came along. Manchester Hoop Contest was ace, and Bearded Theory. Also, making a helluva lot of progress in aerial [hoop].

If you could be paid to do anything in the world as a jo b what would it be?

Baking cakes, it’s gotta be!

What is the epitome of beauty to you?

Cantering along on a beautiful horse, in the sea grass on a beach next to the sea, in the sun with its mane and tail blowing.
What are your favourite things about where you live and why?

Being close to work, which is such a crap answer. Being close to the city in general. I like that you can hear the church bells chime and living with the boy.

If you could go back in time is there anything you would do differently?

I dunno, any answer seems silly cos everything worked out fine?

What do you think are the best things about being alive?

Experiencing everything! And being able to look forward to the future, wonder what the world’s gonna be like.

What are the most exciting things that you are looking forward to doing this year and why?

More festivals, to spend time with the people I love, and to finally started performing!
What do you enjoy learning about most?

Aerialllllllll!!!! * makes punching motion*
If you could send a letter back in time to your 16 year old self what would it say?


In order for you to achieve your dreams what habits would you need to cultivate?

Healthy eating. And so many other things.

What talents, skills, knowledge or experience do you have that could help others?

I could help people to learn hula hoop and aerial? Mainly things to do with the hips.

What’s your favourite form of entertainment and why?

Watching films, cos they send you into a whole different land of imagination and I watch a lot of hula hooping and aerial on Youtube cos they inspire me so much.

What events, activities, projects, organisations, etc, would you like to see more of where you live?

I’d like to see more of Money Power Respect, it seems like a really good project, I’ve seen a few young people on stage rapping and they’re really good, and it’s got to be a good thing if Jonezy and Luke are talking to them as they’re good role models. It’s the fact that they’re all so passionate about it as well that’s really good to see.
