Art / Exhibitions - Spoken Word / Poetry
A performance of poems, richly illustrated with famous paintings. Art from six centuries is brought dramatically to life through the imagined voices of the artists and the figures in their pictures.
Hear the thoughts of a trio of disdainful goddesses, a couple of WWI veterans (one British, one German), a woman hurrying to meet her lover in 19th century Paris, the bewildered wife of a medieval Italian merchant and a modern couple falling out over a picture in a gallery.
Praise from the Wandsworth Arts Fringe 2022:
“Out of the frame and into a fairyland of pictures and words. I loved this!” (Nicoline)
“What an inventive, witty and entertaining way of discovering paintings through poetry” (Adam)
Praise from Villages of Kensington (a supportive, diverse, intergenerational network of neighbours in Maryland USA):
“What a wonderful presentation. Thank you for enriching our lives.” (Jennifer)
“A sophisticated artistic adventure.” (Mary-Margaret)
“I’m still feeling transported. Basking in the gratitude of the group.” (Judie, event organizer)
Profits will be donated to Create, a multi-award-winning charity empowering lives, reducing isolation and enhancing wellbeing through the creative arts.
