Selene is the Greek name for the goddess of the Moon.The world began with a woman, shawl-happed, stooped under a creel, whose slow step you recognise from troubled dreams. You feel obliged to help her bear her burden from hill or kelp-strewn shore, but she passes by unseeing thirled to her private chore. It’s not sea birds or peat she’s carrying, not fleece, nor the herring bright… but her fear that if ever she put it down the world would go out like a light. ‘

The Creel – Kathleen Jamie



‘Connections’ Wild Woman and Nature. The Royal Derby Hospital. Until April 


My portraits of women connect with myth, folklore and symbolism, hiding and revealing personal histories/‘her stories’. The experience of nature and home inspire my work, an affirmation that we gain strength, nourishment and healing from our relationship and connections with nature and our wild selves.

Free improv collective YOWL cooks sonic collisions across an accelerating event space from whispered zero right through to the scream of a libidinal wrench. Expect a weird combination of wind, voices, strings, percussion and full-on animal bodies pushing towards a maximal intensity threshold.
