Blue Apple will be presenting a piece of performance taking as its inspiration the development of poetry through the centuries. This piece has been created out of fragments of poetic work along a timeline from the earliest known writings to the present day using ‘To Autumn' by John Keats as a pivotal point and closing on reflections on a 2019 Winchester Autumn.

Presented with Blue Apple's trademark visual style and wit, this piece is as physical as it is verbal. Using live and recorded spoken work as an inspiration for movement this piece renders poetic works in all their many colours, comic, tragic and many shades in between. It will be a wonderful part of the Keats 200 celebrations '200 years of Autumn'.

Using drama, dance, film and puppetry, Blue Apple have been entertaining Winchester since 2005. Over that time they have become an established and cherished part of the city’s cultural life. As well as telling new and old tales to audiences far and wide, they have addressed serious issues in their work to contribute to the national debate about inclusion and diversity.
