Poetry, Football and the Spirits in the Sky For centuries, people in the northern hemisphere have been so entranced by aurora borealis , the eerie display of lights that invade the winter skies, that they have woven myths and legends around these lights. Colour Catchers , an all-star cast poetry performance that will be hosted on December 12, 2006, by Leicestershire poet, Siobhan Logan will be exploring some of these myths and legends. The performance will revolve around a sequence of 13 poems which range from intimate personal accounts to epic narratives of unearthly journeys. Siobhan Logan says: Some of them focus on the science of what we know about the Aurora Borealis. But for most, I've raided this fantastic story-hoard from countries across the Arctic Circle. "Naming the Lights", for instance, is based on the various names used for the lights by people from the Native Americans of Alaska, to the Inuits of Greenland, the Scots, Laplanders, Russians, etc.
