Miracle Marathon 2016: Ruth Padel

Poet and writer, Ruth Padel, reads from her book, Tidings: A Christmas Journey – a narrative poem in three movements about Christmas, homelessness and sunrise.

The Serpentine’s annual festival of ideas brought together practitioners from the fields of activism, art, anthropology, architecture, literature, music, philosophy, theology and science. The 2016 Serpentine Miracle Marathon focused in on ritual, repetition and magical thinking to consider ways in which the imaginary can not only predict, but also play a part in affecting long-term futures.
