Rhiannon Unbridled

A one-woman storytelling show with original music. Rhiannon Unbridled takes the story of the Celtic Goddess Rhiannon out of its well-preserved Welsh Medieval manuscript in the Bodleian Library, and wrestles with it. Jackie’s stories of her girlhood fascination with horses, and developing relationships with the opposite sex are interlocked with chapters of Rhiannon’s life, until the narratives collide in a need to rescue both modern woman and ancient goddess from the forces that bridle them.

‘I used to be interested in clothes, clubs, buying records. And men. Now my life…what life?’ Responding to Bren Gosling’s ‘Moment of Grace’  two performers explore what it was to be gay in the 80s when the UK was full of fear and ignorance. An intimate duet moving through themes of paranoia, intimacy and oppression. The work also gives thanks to those who made it possible to say “HIV is no longer a death sentence.”
