A spoken word event accompanied by a series of short films, touching on themes – a broken land, the limits of language, mother and daughter, the connection to the sea.

A girl stands at the shore. She walks into the sea. A woman sits in the attic with the night all around her. A green veil passes over their faces connecting their worlds.

‘On the day Maya Angelou died I heard her poem ‘Phenomenal Woman’ for the first time. I sat down and started to write and haven’t stopped. This was the moment of stirring.’

The film footage is from walks in and around Whitstable – its shoreline, vegetation, and skies….big events which have resonances with thoughts and feelings often overlooked.
