The Legend of St Julian

Fri 25th – Sun 27th Aug 10.30pm £10/8

Two naked men face each other across an empty space. They are armed, but only with words – the words of Gustave Flaubert’s re-spinning of ‘The Legend of St Julian’.

The signal is given, the contest begins. As the combatants clash in a series of increasingly frenetic encounters, the narrative of Flaubert’s tale of medieval murder unfolds and builds towards its mystical conclusion.

Flesh / fiction, body / word – literary salon collides with ancient Olympics, ‘Naked Boys Reading’ classical Greek style!

Come to DepthSound’s bank holiday weekend late-night pop-up parlour at the Hen & Chickens.

Nudity throughout – 16+ only
