The Sky Runs Right Through Us


This unique event marks a new collaboration between poet Renee Pettitt-Schipp, and singer-songwriters Ashley Schipp and Jenny Gaunt.

Reading from her debut collection, The Sky Runs Right Through Us (UWA Publishing), these poems travel from Shelley Beach to Shark Bay, Donnelly River to Delhi, Christmas Island to Coolbellup, exploring themes of migration, detention, grief, love, family, as well as connection and disconnection between people and the natural world.

Weaved through this performance, Ashley Schipp and Jenny Gaunt will perform pieces of Renee’s work set to music, sharing which poems spoke to them as well as the challenges and joys of adapting poetry to music.
