Structured as an allegorical fable and loosely inspired by existential science fiction, The Nine Muses is a stylized, unusual and idiosyncratic retelling of the history of mass migration to post war Britain through the suggestive lens of the Homeric epic.
Divided into nine overlapping musical chapters and mixing a vast array of archival material with original shot scenes from the United Kingdom..., The Nine Muses is a modern recasting of Homer’s epic as a ‘song cycle’ on journeys, on migration, on memory and the power of elegy.
