"Atalanta", a Greek myth, retold by Ben Haggarty

A girl raised by a bear.  A fathers desperate pursuit for procreation in the name of immortality. And the most terrifying race with the most terrifying prize......
Audaciously reshuffling epic Greek mythology, Ben Haggarty brings to the stage a fierce tale of a remarkable hunter and devotee of Artemis who sure as hell doesn't want anything to do with men. 
The veneer of classical civilisation is stripped away and the the truly awesome implications of the tales are made, sometimes unbearably, clear. Spend a moonlit night in the company of  wild women, cocksure warriors and gods unleashed.
Adult (14+) Duration 70minutes

STORYTELLING

The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives.  They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.

If you want to know more, come and listen to the Shaggy Dog Storytellers presenting
