The Centre for Myth Studies presents The Orpheus Project

Wine, juice and nibbles provided
The myth of Orpheus still resonates powerfully in Western Culture. Intrigued by its continuing relevance for artistic practitioners, three poets, a musician and a painter came together to explore the creative possibilities of the myth through varying patterns of interdisciplinary engagement. For the landscapes of Thrace and Avernus the Orpheus Project substituted the hills around Llangattock in Powys, focussing especially on the quarries and caves of the local nature reserve.
Using words, images, film, photographs and music, Lyndon Davies and Penny Hallas give an account of the development of the project so far.
