Daisy Barrett Nash
My practise is based in weaving together theatre and spoken word poetry to create a narrative to highlight pertinent social issues. I write poetry and create theatre around themes such as mental health, family, race, gender, sexuality, class and systems of oppression within our society. I explore these themes by drawing on personal experience, I write spoken word verse to build narratives and strong characters that are representative of marginalised groups. Theatrical techniques are then used to create visual aesthetically pleasing interpretations of the text to aid understanding of themes and to increase the impact the text has on its audience.
