Poet and rapper Kate Tempest brings us an epic spoken tale of the every day Gods.

The gods are in the betting shops, the gods are in the cafe,
The gods can’t afford the deposit on their flat...
Winged sandals tearing up the pavement,
Me, you, everyone, brand new ancients

Unfolding on the edges of the city, Brand New Ancients discovers the myths of modern times in the lives of two families as they collide, connect and come apart - all racing towards a violent conclusion.
Poet and rapper Kate Tempest tells an everyday epic over an exhilarating live score played by tuba, cello, violin, drums and electronics, that finds the gods of today all around us and reveals that our true heroes are much closer that we think.
Score composed by Nell Catchpole in collaboration with and performed by Kwake Bass, Raven Bush, Natasha Zielazinski and Jo Gibson.
