Brand New Ancients - Poet Kate Tempest at the Young Vic on 3 January 2014
Brand New Ancients
Young Vic Theatre, London
3 January 2014
The gods are in the betting shops, the gods are in the cafe,
The gods can’t afford the deposit on their flat...
Winged sandals tearing up the pavement,
Me, you, everyone, brand new ancients.
Poet and spoken word artist Kate Tempest tells an everyday epic over an exhilarating live score played by tuba, cello, violin, drums and electronics, that finds the gods of today all around us and reveals that our true heroes are much closer than we think.
