Join award-winning poet Owen Lowery as he discusses his new project, Transitions, a brand new series of poems dealing with the subject of transitions and transformations, presented in a series of readings, supported by film and music, plus theatrical interpretation.

The shows will be an immersive and immediate experience for audiences aiming to include those who may have little or no previous experience of poetry, and disability, as well as those who are affected by these topics. 

Transitions will be explored from a personal, and a more objective and philosophical viewpoint. The subject of the collection is of great personal relevance to Owen as since, at the age of 18, he suffered a spinal injury in 1987 and became paralysed from the shoulders down and dependent on a ventilator to breathe. As well as considering his own transition from able-bodied sports star, to disabled poet, he will look at the subject of transitions in the natural world, by considering climate change, metamorphosis, and evolution, and in human terms, by looking at areas such as migration, disability, and social change.

Introduced by Degna Stone

Transitions is commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Arts Council England
