Revisiting the worlds of Artemis and Kassandra

TWO of the most famous characters of Greek myth and legend, the goddess Artemis and the doomed prophetess Kassandra, are at the heart of Wild Visions and Untamed Myth, an evening of storytelling with Katy Cawkwell and Lucy Lill, starting its local tour dates with Artsreach at the Pamela Hambro Hall at Winterborne Stickland on Saturday 20th January at 7.30pm.

The following night, Sunday 21st, Cerne Abbas, deep in the heart of Dorset, with its still-mysterious, world-famous chalk hill carving, seems a perfect setting for an evening of wild and wonderful stories and myths from the distant past.

Plunge into the wild world of the goddess Artemis for an ecstatic encounter with the Dawn, a moonlit path that leads to transformation and a dilemma that maybe only the audience can solve.

Then meet Kassandra, a daughter of the Trojan King Priam, blessed with the power to see the future, cursed with never being believed. It’s a story of betrayal, war and destruction – urban, dark and devastating.

Join these two acclaimed storytellers on a path less trodden, as they go hunting in the wild places and raking through the ashes of a fallen city to bring you epic tales of women taking their power whatever the consequences …

Wild Visions and Untamed Myth is also at Poole Lighthouse arts centre on Saturday 3rd February and Bath’s Rondo Theatre on Saturday 2nd March.
