This event is being sold at full capacity, with no social distancing measures in place.

Jarman’s mystical transfiguration of the English landscape is also a beautifully poetic ode to gay love. Shakespeare’s sonnets, read by Judi Dench, are set to a gentle score from queer, experimental music group Coil. While ritual actions that celebrate the body are simply and touchingly performed by men along the Dorset coastline.

This very tender non-narrative piece was Jarman’s personal favourite.
