The Three Furies
Spoken Word and Film

The Three Furies, is a dynamic poetry-in-performance film, written, devised and performed by Zena Edwards (UK), Mbali Vilakazi (South Africa ) and Clara Opoku (Netherlands). It is shot partly on location, partly in the studio and during two live performances: one at the Albany in Deptford and one at MC Amsterdam. It was commissioned by Afrovibes with support from both Arts Council England and British Council South Africa.

The three artists translate, embody and embolden the energy of the Greek mythical legend of The Three Furies... First and foremost the protectors of women and children, they were known as the most terrifying spectres of vengeance in the ancient world. Also known as The Eumenides - "The Kindly Ones", The Furies bring balance to injustices done to the Family. Three female poets transform the power of this myth into contemporary representations of women.
