A retelling of the myth of Atalanta – a fierce tale of a remarkable virgin hunter and devotee of Artemis who sure as hell doesn’t want to have anything to do with men…
This provocative story is the latest episode from Greek Mythology to get BenHaggarty’s ‘Myth Unleashed’ treatment. Here the veneers of classical civilisation are stripped away and the challenging, and truly awesome, implications of the tales are made clear.
Spend a night in the company of bears, centaurs, warriors and gods….
(not suitable for under 14s)
