Our new performance 'Before the Termination of a Flight' combines the poetry of David Bomberg with ambient music and a movement performance and finishes off with a poetry reading by Cecily Bomberg.


British artist David Bomberg was a soldier during the First World War. He took to writing poetry while deprived of access to his primary art-form, painting. He continued drawing, but these are distinctly different from his poetry and do not show the horrors of the war.

To mark the centennial of the end of WWI, this performance explores three of Bomberg’s poems from the war and examines how different art-forms can express different emotions and experiences.

The performance will consist of three sound pieces mixing electronic music and ambient soundscapes with Bomberg’s poetry and three correlating movement performances, all created by current LSBU students.
