About this event
a poetic journey through the deep and into light
we begin with poems and stories of life lived, love shared
then we enter life’s tunnels and caves, poems and stories from the wilderness, the night
we emerge into the light with poems and stories of restoration, healing, renewal, and hope
includes new work, and work from the artist’s collections and past performances
raw. honest. cathartic. hopeful.
Storyteller and poet, Sarah Agnew has told stories in Edinburgh, at the Scottish Storytelling Centre, Cheltenham, at Greenbelt Festival, and in various parts of the USA and Australia. Whisper on My Palm is the latest of four poetry collections, and its journey through grief for a parent, lament as a community after bushfires and a pandemic. The journey to joyful discoveries of healing and wholeness forms the thread that will weave this evening of poetry and storytelling together.
