Writer and scholar Sally Bayley joins with pianist Nicole Panizza, folk musician hannah Sanders and filmmaker Suzie Hanna to present the poetry and prose of Emily Dickinson through her relationship to music and poetic imagery.

Panizza and Sanders will perform words and music directly taken from Dickinson’s repertoire of classical music and popular song, together with fragments of her envelope poems. Their improvised performance will be illustrated by projected moving images curated in real time by filmmaker Suzie Hanna.

Following the performance, Bayley will lead a workshop on Emily Dickinson’s poetry and letters. The focus of the session will be Dickinson’s envelope poems written on scraps of envelopes and images drawn from her body of imagery related to the natural world. Participants will interact with Dickinson’s poetic shapes on paper, creating collage pieces that explore her understanding of line and shape and musical notation.

This event lasts three hours.
