Event description

Description

Ovid’s Heroines, written around 20BC, is a series of letter-poems in the voices of women from Greek and Roman myth. Women – including Medea, Penelope and Ariadne – address the men they love. Poet Clare Pollard’s new free verse translation rediscovers Ovid’s Heroines, bringing to life a cast of women who are brave, bitchy, sexy, horrifying, heartbreaking and surprisingly modern.

Jaybird Live Literature brings the Heroines to the stage in a new live literature production. Clare reads, recites and performs her astonishing poems against a backdrop of Mediterranean music. Love letters fly back and forth between the ancient world and modern Britain – the messages of longing, suffering and beauty they bear are universal and timeless.
