★★★★ “Blake is a phenomenal storyteller” – A Younger Theatre
★★★★ “An intimate and rich experience, Blodeuwedd Untold has the potential to transport you to another world” – Theatre Weekly
Unearth the unwritten Blodeuwedd, the Frankenstein of flowers. Captured in the pages of a medieval book, the ancient myth of Blodeuwedd describes a woman made out of flowers who was turned into an owl as punishment for adultery. But who was this woman before being confined to the page?
Jo Blake, international contemporary storyteller, irradiates this figure of Celtic myth through word, movement and ritual. The myth is unravelled in this radical reclamation of the untold; intertwined with personal experience and striking observations of the role of myth in our unmythic modern lives.
Jo performed this piece to sell-out audiences at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Presented by Jo Blake in association with The Pleasance and Royal & Derngate, Northampton.
