Out of the Frame – Poet Joe Treasure and actor Zimmy Ryan perform a sequence of poems richly illustrated with famous paintings
November 12 @ 7:00 pm£7
Art from six centuries brought dramatically to life through the imagined voices of the artists, their models and the figures they represent.
Hear the thoughts of a trio of disdainful goddesses, a couple of WWI veterans (one British, one German), a woman hurrying to meet her lover in 19th century Paris, the bewildered wife of a medieval Italian merchant and a modern couple falling out over a picture in a gallery.
Author of three novels, The Male Gaze (Picador 2007), Besotted (Picador 2010) and The Book of Air (Clink Street 2017), Joe was shortlisted in 2021 for the Bridport Poetry Prize.
Zimmy trained at LAMDA and worked as an actor for many years, before becoming a psychotherapist.
Praise from the audience at the Wandsworth Arts Fringe
“Out of the frame and into a fairyland of pictures and words. I loved this!” (Nicoline)
“What an inventive, witty and entertaining way of discovering paintings through poetry” (Adam)
