Friends of Heptonstall Museum: Contemplation Space
Friends of Heptonstall Musuem are creating A Contemplation Space where you can take time to remember Sylvia and to reflect on her life and work, to listen to or read her poems or even to write some poems, in the quiet space of the Heptonstall Museum, a beautiful 17th Century building at the heart of Heptonstall village. There will comfy chairs, cups of tea, candles, and second hand poetry books on sale (all proceeds to the museum restoration fund).
ADAPTING PLATH with Saskia Black
Heptonstall Museum, Sunday 23rd October, 1pm. suggested donation £3 (goes to the museum restoration fund)
An informal discussion on the process, pitfalls and potential of adapting the poetry of Sylvia Plath for radio.
Shortly after a dramatic realisation of Sylvia Plath’s Ariel and Winter Trees has been aired on BBC Radio 3, the director of the programme, Saskia Black, reflects on how the production was realised and reflects on how adaptations can best honour (and not betray) Plath’s work. Excerpts from Almost Tangible’s production for BBC Radio 3 ‘Ariel and Winter Trees’ will also be shared.
