This compelling performance by acclaimed storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton merges myth, fairytale and raucous Greek philosophy. Combining two classical texts, the mythical romance of Eros and Psyche and Plato’s Symposium, she presents an epic power play of beauty and jealousy between humans and the gods that asks: what is the true path of love?
