Ali Matthews and Ffion Jones

Leda and Strauss-Kahn

Performed in The Box Saturday 7.00-8.00

Part epic poem, part gritty testimony, Leda and Strauss-Kahn is a storytelling “remix” that weaves together the Greek myth of Leda and Zeus with the former IMF leader’s recent sex scandal. How do myths – contemporary and ancient – work to confuse us about what really happened?

Written and performed by Alison Matthews, with scenography and design assistance from Ffion Jones.
