INUA ELLAMS + HANNAH SILVA + SIMON BARRACLOUGH + LEAFCUTTER JOHN (MUSIC) + ROSS SUTHERLAND (VIDEO)
On December 21st 1817 a twenty-two year-old poet wrote in a letter to his brothers that a great writer possesses ‘Negative Capability, that is when man is capable of being in uncertainties, Mysteries, doubts.’
The poet was John Keats, and his famous phrase is the starting point for a new immersive performance work. Join poets Hannah Silva, Inua Ellams and Simon Barraclough in their investigations of creativity and the negative space of the imagination, with a video installation by Ross Sutherland and atmospheric live accompaniment from experimental musician Leafcutter John.
