YOU HAVE MY WORD
Live Writing Performance
"Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty, 1 in 10 to 20 people within the UK have some form of dyslexia" - NHS
This performance explores Becks' difficult relationship with words; writing and reading them. Becks handwrites a poem using words given by the audience; projected live onto a screen. This allows the audience to see her thought process, mistakes and creativity unfold. There is a time restriction set to write the poem, mirroring the British education system, which currently marks intelligence on the ability to perform in a timed written exam.
