A huge thank you to all of you who joined us on Thursday 3rd December 2020 for the live stream event hosted by October Books. Such an engaged audience with profound comments and questions.
A very special thank you to Maija Liepins for her collaboration. Not only has Maija written the Foreword to Misselbrook’s new book, but also performed, with Sarah, an extract of their conversational poetry performance from the summer long passing of words and thoughts in the lead up to the book publication.
The full exchange is available as part of the extra digital material accessed by scanning the QR code at the back of the book.
The evening presented Misselbrook’s 5 minute ‘Rant from the Rock’ entitled ‘Outside, Inside the Forest’. Misselbrook performed this to video for the Laboratory of Dissent 2.0 for Chapel Arts Studios in 2019. The rant was followed by a live performance of an extract of the conversational poetry between artists Maija Liepins and Sarah Misselbrook. The event culminated in a new spoken word video, showing Misselbrook scrambling up the Calatan mountainside, short of breath, finally reaching the summit in a search for restoration and hope.
