Introducing Taste and See

By The Rabbit Room

Every once in a while, the Rabbit Room team has the good fortune of crossing paths with someone whose creative work is shockingly aligned with our own. These moments re-invigorate us not only in our own mission and vision, but in the desire to share the good and lasting work of kindred spirits far and wide. Most recently, this wonderful convergence has taken place with Andrew Brumme, who is directing a new documentary series called Taste and See that will blow your mind and change the way you think about breakfast.

Branching Out: Galahad and the Tree of Tales

By Malcolm Guite

Tolkien has rightly described the world of story, and especially the mysterious world of fairy tale, myth and legend, as being like a great branching tree: deeply rooted in the past, rooted in the very origins of language and the earliest mysteries of our creation as human beings, but branching out from the past into the present as each new generation absorbs the sap of the old tales and puts out branches, unfolds leaves—which are themselves new creations, new developments and yet rising out of the earliest stories, organically related to the whole, not so much inventing novelties as teasing out and opening up seeds of potentiality hidden in the earlier telling.

Breathing Again: Long Covid & All the Wrecked Light

By Leah McMichael

I was a little dizzy when All The Wrecked Light livestreamed during the last week of Lent in 2021. As a grad student, I couldn’t afford to do just one thing at a time, so I was roasting discount vegetables as my wireless headphones negotiated with the Wi-Fi. I only caught snatches of the dove over the water and breath taken back again. Two months into long Covid, that sounded familiar.

Artists & Being Known with Orion Dyson-Smith

By The Rabbit Room

Being an artist can be lonely work. Not only do we often work alone, but we frequently find ourselves in community with people who may not have as intimate a relationship with their own creativity as we do. Sometimes we don’t know how to talk about our creative work, and our loved ones don’t know how to ask about it. If our friends don’t know how to ask why we love the things we love, and we don’t know how to bridge the gap from our side, then how can we be truly known?
