The final details of the performance schedule are being ironed out. Today I sat on the grass at Melrose Abbey - a surprise in itself - with artist Jane Gaze, Gordon Turnbull of The Flow and Tim Fitzpatrick of The Red Field. The poetry that the writing Fragments team have worked on will form part of the event once we get to Melrose Parish Church. And we have been thinking of ways to do this. Maybe with me reading over music. It will be an interesting challenge and I want to use the poems in a slightly non-conventional way.
The audience will also be able to experience the Hawick Missal itself presented alongside our responses in poetry and art. And then into the night.
Today however thoughts were also on the will it/will it not be here question of the scaffolding.
A beautiful day today in the Borders. This project has been a real pleasure to work on and I can't wait until the performance itself now. More here http://www.historic-scotland.gov.uk/index/places/events/event_detail.htm?eventid=42074#.UzCRhvl_vtI.
...enjoy an evening of song and a procession of music, text and imagery along a path of shimmering red light.
