Hull’17 poets. Helen Mort and Hannah Silva perform two very different new imaginative works which blend adventurous sound and interview with exceptional poetry. Inspired by the life and work of legendary climber Gwen Moffat, Helen Mort will be climbing a route on rock in the Lake District then trying to recreate the experience through language, investigating her theory that a climb is ‘a set of instructions for the body’.
Can poetry evoke what it’s really like to be on the edge? Hannah Silva presents Solitary confinement – described as deep custody, a prison within a prison. Hannah Silva’s Solitary is an immersive sound experience of segregation as a woman battles with time.
