Kate Tempest and Battersea Arts Centre on Tour
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.
Recommended for ages 14+.
