This is the studio production of Brand New Ancients, the poet Kate Tempest’s acclaimed stage show that toured to sold out venues in the UK and New York.
Brand New Ancients captures her unique blend of street poetry, rap and storytelling and is the tale of two families and their intertwining lives, set against the background of the city and braided with classical myth. Kate Tempest shows how the old myths still live on in our everyday acts of violence, bravery, sacrifice and love – and that our lives make tales no less dramatic and powerful than those of the old gods.
Kate Tempest is one of the most exciting and innovative performers to have emerged in spoken-word poetry in many years: this dramatic poem won the prestigious Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry and the Herald Angel at Edinburgh Fringe.
“A torrent of poetry so brilliant that the words often seem to glow and smoke with intensity” – The Scotsman
“A genuinely galvanising presence” – The Guardian
“A truly fresh and compelling voice” – London Evening Standard
“Kate Tempest is a force of nature, a performance poet whose words feel torn from the very earth” – Metro
“Ms. Tempest stitches together words with such animate grace that language acquires an almost tactile quality...” – The New York Times
