With artists: Sally Bayley, Suzie Hanna, Hannah Sanders and Nicole Panizza
This workshop will encourage participants to create new ‘experimental readings’ of Emily Dickinson’s work by merging fragments of selected poems with lyrics from various songs found in her piano bench.
Featured material will consist of textual fragments that exist in direct sympathy with and reference to Dickinson’s envelope poems featured in Bervin, Werner and Howe’s edited collection, The Gorgeous Nothings.
This workshop will be followed by a c. 30-minute performance featuring musical performance and video projection: an exploration of the various ways in which live performance can develop and accommodate fragmented musical and visual motifs.
The day will end with a brief Q&A built around the performance.
