Was she a victim of the wiles of Hades, or a willing Queen of the underworld? In this lyrical re-working of the classical myth of Persephone and the epic journey to and return from the underworld, her voice is explored as it has never been heard before. Through a rich tapestry of words and images that resonate with both classical and contemporary interpretations of this grand narrative, Katherine Sutherland and Alex Singleton breath new life into the age-old story of descent, ascent and transformation.
