Firstsite, Lewis Gardens, High Street
Colchester, CO1 1JH
Tickets:
Free
Drop-in, no booking required

Step into the Live Poetry Jukebox for an intimate and magical experience of poetry, visual art and performance! This interactive installation works like a music jukebox, only with poetry. You are invited to look at the beautiful ‘library’ of jars, each containing a miniature artwork that expresses a feeling or idea connected to poem. Choose one you feel particularly drawn to and listen to a live performance of ‘your’ poem!

Suitable for ages 5+

“My Heart, My Heart: Live Poetry Jukebox is an exciting, novel way of experiencing poetry and offers moments of beauty, calm, contemplation, respite, reflection and reassurance.”

“A particularly memorable treat … sparked the imagination in thought-provoking ways” WriteOutLoud
