SUNDAY 2 OCTOBER 2022
Heidi Sander composed her collection The Forest of My Mind as a response to the death of her mother. Comprising themes of family, loss, memory, hope and nature, the poems touch upon the various stages of loss while offering a sense of hope and renewal. The award-winning poem, "How We Live On" is Heidi’s recipe for remembering.
Joined by Stratford Festival Theatre dancer, Bonnie Jordan, the two art forms of poetry and dance come together with music, to express the journey of loss to renewal.
