Consider a Bard

An English woman, an American woman and a Scotsman: Consider a Bard. For their Burns Supper 2013 myself and Morgan Cahn were invited by Hospitalfields and GENERATORprojects to make performances considering Robert Burns. Morgan spent the evening learning about the Bard from books and conversation, while I reimagined some of Rabbie’s famous works by writing and rewriting lines from his poems on a chalk board in the centre of the room. This process created new poems as it revealed new combinations of words and phrases, while simultaneously erasing itself as my hand moved across the chalk.
