Anguis

Cleopatra’s death by asp is a common myth, largely scientifically disproven. Set in a broadcast recording center, Anguis is an imagined conversation between the great pharaoh Cleopatra and a contemporary immunologist. Join us in the studio as we unpack Cleopatra’s story, exploring alternatives to the fetishised popular truth. A story exploring our responsibility to seek the truth in a post-truth era. This debut piece from Olivier Award winner Sheila Atim will feature original music. Commissioned by Avalon and BBC Arts.
