Wandering around Swansea after the absolutely excellent Shelf Life, I decided to seize the opportunity to bring Dylan Thomas's poetry to life in his very own city.
Working together with good friend (and fellow TEAM member) Becca Oakley and taking inspiration from the fact that the Old Library used to house thousands of works by this writer, we decided to test the notion Dylan Thomas's 'Notes on the Art of Poetry' is still relevant today.
The experience was interesting to say the least. It was a night of torn pages interspersed with Katy Perry and Simply Red and this is the result....
I could never have dreamt that there were such goings-on
in the world between the covers of books,
such sandstorms and ice blasts of words,
such staggering peace, such enormous laughter,
such and so many blinding bright lights,
splashing all over the pages
in a million bits and pieces
all of which were words, words, words,
and each of which were alive forever
in its own delight and glory and oddity and light.
