8 Minute Delay

Yesha Townsend

Created for the Bermuda Festival, 8 Minute Delay is a series of poems dedicated to the sun, written and performed by Yesha Townsend, which she describes as a “re-mythologizing of the sun in respect to Bermudian culture”.

The immersive experience was staged in the Bermuda National Gallery before a small audience and filmed for the Bermuda Festival, which this year has gone virtual.
