9:00 pm

“be entertained, captivated, and impressed” – Maddy Harland

ONCA Centre for Arts and Ecology presents

skindancing – An Evening with Susan Richardson.

Susan, current poet in residence with the Marine Conservation Society, has been described by many as a ‘sparkling’ spoken word performer. She will be reading and performing from her new poetry collection skindancing during the evening.

The performance will be followed by an audience discussion and Q & A.

Tickets: £5.00 (£4.00 concs)

skindancing (Cinnamon Press, 2015) is Susan’s new poetry collection, themed around human-animal metamorphosis and both our intimacy with, and alienation from, the wild and our animal selves. Its sources of inspiration include shapeshifting tales from a number of different cultures, from Inuit to Celtic, Native American to Norse, as well as Susan’s ongoing engagement with shamanic journeying.
