A one off opportunity to see this short multidisciplinary collaboration performed live before its film launch at Birmingham Literature Festival this year and consequent film touring in 2016. 

Not for the easily queasy, this eco-feminist reimagining of the Myth of Eden in response to Ted Hughes’ Theology has been described as a cannibalistic sex metaphor and likened to the work of Angela Carter. Originally commissioned by mac birmingham and Apples & Snakes for a scratch performance night, the narrative poem has been reworked by writer, Elisabeth Charis, in close collaboration with editors, Inua Ellams and Hannah Silva; acclaimed animator, Emma Reading; award winning musician/composer, Steve Tromans; renowned percussionist, Mark Robertson and sound artist, Soesen Eden. The finished piece is a negotiation of music, animation, sound and language exploring how stories respond to and create cultural identities.  

Additional sound effects and production - Ed Lawes
