Premiere of I, Sheep
Please join us for the online premiere of I, Sheep. This is a deeply moving filmpoem that combines video, poetry and performance to tell the profound story of a single ewe and her links to the lives of a farm and farming family. I, Sheep‘s exploration of rural heritage moves beyond the human and it reflects on the anonymous and voiceless sheep whose presence can be found so clearly across our collections. I, Sheep is the final piece of work to emerge from The MERL’s Museum of the Intangible project, funded by Arts Council England. I, Sheep was created by Professor Teresa Murjas (Professor of Theatre & Performance at the University of Reading) in collaboration with Dr James Rattee and former MERL poet-in-residence, Dr Jack Thacker.
