Ugly Duck hosted the first incarnation of OE at 47/49 Tanner Street. OE is a multidisciplinary retelling of Orpheus and Eurydice, with multiple outcomes, including exhibitions, performances and a graphic novel. The project is a collaboration between Tom de Freston, Kiran Millwood Hargrave and Max Barton.
The Tanner Street event was a sell out, showcasing paintings (by Tom de Freston), songs (by Max Barton) and poems by (Kiran Millwood Hargrave) from the series. The performance of the songs and poems was supported by Chris Barton, Nick Tigg and Ensemble Perpetuo. The evening was produced by Chris Edis and curated by Tom de Freston.
