An interactive poetry reading, created by Steve Smart and Rebecca Sharp, THIS is formed around Rebecca Sharp’s original poem of the same name. Bringing poetry together with sound, visual art and digital media, the work asks what the reader brings to the experience of reading and what they receive in return.
THIS is a piece of exploration, of curiosity and of hope – but it’s also a piece which holds back from offering solid ‘answers’. At the end of a year of uncertainty, THIS reminds readers that not knowing is OK, and that we’re all doing the same, underneath the skin of things. The piece playfully demonstrates the ability of poetry to present intricate and elusive ideas, images and feelings for interaction and transformative experience.
