Frost from Fire
Poetry / music / video presentation based on the lives and poems of the Brontës, devised and performed by Adam Strickson, David Wilson and Simon Warner. Originally created for the University of Leeds conference Revisioning the Brontës in 2013, the first full performance was at Bradford Cathedral 2013 and the second at the Brontë Society annual members’ weekend in Haworth 2014.
Rehearsals for all 3 performances took place at Whitestone Arts. Simon projects landscape video sequences to accompany Adam’s recitation of his own poetry and poems by the Brontës. Different video sequences accompany David’s specially composed saxaphone and flute music. And sometimes all 3 elements are experienced together.
