Wolverhampton Artsfest Launch Party
May 9, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pmFree
I’m telling two stories at the ArtsFest launch. ‘Arachne’ is a shape-changing story from the Roman poet Ovid featuring a surprisingly petty Goddess of Wisdom, a peasant girl who uses her weaving to call the Gods to account, and rather a lot of yarn. ‘Bisclavret’ is a medieval werewolf story by twelfth-century poet Marie de France about an exasperated wife and a king who is a little too fond of his new pet wolf.
