Synopsis

Using Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey, as a narrative starting point, and structured as an allegorical fable, The Nine Muses is a stylised and idiosyncratic retelling of the history of mass migration—particularly from Africa and the Caribbean—to post-war Britain. Divided into nine overlapping chapters and blending archival material with haunting images of snow-blanketed landscapes, this is a genre-defying work, a mystifying (and mythifying) tone poem about journeys, migration, memory and the power of elegy.
