Bright Morning Stars Solstice Shorts Video

Two takes on celestial bodies for our time themed festival – Nicky Diss reads Emma Timpany‘s story Stars in which a failed relationship is likened to a comet passing (among other brilliantly imagined connections).

This story is one of sixteen read at the festival and featured in the book Solstice Shorts: Sixteen Stories about Time

and Summer All Year Long singing Bright Morning Star, a traditional spiritual arranged by Lester Simpson

These were actually programmed together at the festival – we had such great plans for curating the songs and stories to match, but in reality we had to programme based on who could get where and when, so it was particularly satisfying when song and story matched up, and at least we get to have another go at the curation lark with the videos.

Disclaimer from the BSL Interpreter, who would have liked to rehearse with the performers, so treat interpretation as indicative rather than inspired.
