Ben Haggarty: MeZoLith – Stone Age Dreams and Nightmares #12
Ben Haggarty is one of the world’s leading contemporary storytellers, who creates and performs work inspired by international fairy tale, myth and epic. His deep research into ancient stories and cultures also led to the graphic novel series MeZolith with artist Adam Brockbank. Starting from this stone age horror project, we explore all sorts of questions surrounding research and telling (and re-telling) of traditional narrative.
Since the age of stone and bone the storyteller has straddled the worlds seen and unseen, giving voice to tales hoary with age, tales that have been revived time and time again by countless mouths and minds before, remade, refound, rediscovered, remembered.
