I CAME FROM THE WILDERNESS
John Maytham, presenter
Wednesday 18 January
COURSE FEES R110
Everyone’s talking about rewilding: might it be possible to use poetry to rewild yourself so that you can sing the song of the Loch Ness monster, sound your barbaric yawp, nod briefly and become a cabbage? Performed by John Maytham and compiled by Finuala Dowling, this is an exhilarating hour-long exploration of poems that celebrate both the wild in you and the increasingly threatened wilderness we all depend upon. I Came from the Wilderness features rousing, funny, haunting and resonant poems by, among others, Walt Whitman, Carl Sandburg, Nikki Giovanni, D.H. Lawrence, Lewis Carroll, C.S. Lewis, Shel Silverstein, Jane Hirshfield and Tracy K. Smith.
Wine, grape juice and snacks will be served after this performance.
