Created by APGRD Artist in Residence Marie-Louise Crawley

Marie-Louise Crawley spent six months in 2017 as Artist in Residence at the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama (APGRD). Her residency gave rise to the creation and performance of the solo durational dance work Likely Terpsichore? Fragments, performed and filmed in the Ashmolean museum. The work takes its inspiration from a marble sculpture in the museum, labelled 'likely Terpsichore, the muse of the dance', and draws on the stories of four female characters from myth (Galatea, Myrrha, Philomela and Medusa). It also formed the practice submission element of Marie-Louise's doctoral thesis, undertaken at the Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE) at Coventry University.
