Nourish the Us-ness
Join storyteller Cath Little and poet Susan Richardson for an exciting new collaborative performance themed around human-animal metamorphosis. The performance will draw on myths and fairytales from a wide range of different cultures, from Celtic to Native American to Norse, as well as on the process of shamanic journeying and trance dance. Meet a lion-man, a daughter who transforms into a deer, and hear the watery whooshes of a Celtic seal-woman as Cath and Susan word-dance from skin to skin, exploring both our intimacy with, and alienation from, our animal selves.
