Tales from Ovid

Tales from Ovid_bone marrow theatre_nadine dimitrievitch_melbourne physical theatre_Poster

Bone Marrow Theatre is currently devising a one woman show adapted from the poetical work ‘Tales from Ovid’ by Ted Hughes. Directed by Alex Pinder and Performed by Nadine Dimitrievitch this piece will explore several stories from the collection of myths which Hughes has so masterfully retold from the classic ‘Metamorphoses’ by Ovid.

Told through voice, mime and movement, Dimitrievitch brings these beautiful tales to life. Ovid’s Tales are a reflection on humanity, telling us who we are, where we have come from and what is to come; as relevant today as they have been over the last two thousand years.

‘Tales from Ovid’ has had a public viewing September 3rd-6th 2014 as part of Bone Marrow’s 2014 Residency at Revolt Melbourne Artspace.
