We’re incredibly excited to share news of Katie Byford’s new project The Styx – a film opera.
The artist film will refocus the narrative around sexual violence and trauma towards healing. Katie will be working with composer Athanasia Kontou and performer Helene Mathiesen.
The Writing Squad is one of several partners supporting the project. Charity PTSD UK and contemporary opera company Medusa Collective will also be offering their backing and insight.
The project received an Arts Council England project grant to fund the first stage of development, bolstered by a crowdfunding campaign, the details of which can be found here.
