Lisa Roberts is a Sydney-based dancer and animator with whom I hope to work on a series of Antarctica-based collaborations next year (together with geologist/musician Rupert Summerson from Canberra).
Earlier this year, Lisa, Rupert and I spent an afternoon in the krill nursery at the Australian Antarctic Division in Hobart, Tasmania. So much has happened between then and now that it sometimes feels as though a hundred years have passed, when in fact it's 'only' been four months.
Yesterday, Lisa sent me a link to her most recent animation titled Krill Watching. I immediately thought, 'This is a poem; it's witty, tender, lyrical, balletic, playful and profound... ' I asked her if I could post her her krill piece as my Tuesday Poem this week - and here it is.
If you would like be transported, enchanted and uplifted, I would encourage you to visit Lisa's website where you can explore her sensitively drawn image-scapes.
Thank you, Lisa.
