Philomela and her Sisters


A few pictures from Philomela and her Sisters, which was commissioned for this year’s Theatre Without Borders conference at the University of Hull.  The piece sought to explore and critique the treatment of female characters in Classical and Renaissance revenge tragedy.  It connects dialogues surrounding #MeToo and #TIMESUP to a selection of works from the Western literary canon.  (Virgil’s Aeneid, Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Euripides’ Hecuba and Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus.)  I am pleased to say that it will be back in Hull later this year.
