DROUGHT is a compositional performance poem. Part mythology, epic lyrical poetry and autobiography, 'DROUGHT' sings out the story of Caenis, a woman hidden deep in the depths of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, elegantly fragmenting ancient narratives whlst weaving the parallels into her own life DROUGHT illuminates the power of stories that have for too long prophesied women’s destinies, crying out to change them - before we become them. This is not only survivor story, but a provocation to re-write history. A call to love, a call to change, a call to find a way to begin again.
