On Common Ground: the life & times of John Clare - Online Event

by Hugh Lupton

presented by the Crick Crack Club

‘Sheer wizardry in the guise of utter simplicity… wonderfully evocative.’ Eastern Daily Press


‘The landscape holds the memory of everyone who has ever trodden it… all we have to do is listen.’ John Clare

Master wordsmith Hugh Lupton puts his ear to the ground to tell the story of nature poet John Clare – tormented by romance laid barren by class, and the loss of freedom to walk ancient pathways as, with the enclosure acts of the 1800s, land was seized, divided and fenced.

Poetic, political and seditious, this performance explores the porous boundaries between language and place, love and lunacy, home and exile.
