The Nine Muses + Q and A

John Akomfrah's The Nine Muses uses Homer's The Odyssey as a framework by which to explore mass migration to post modern Britain. An evolution of his gallery piece Mnemosyne, which appeared in the BFI Southbank Gallery, this series of tone poems investigates identity and myth. Here he speaks with Festival Producer Helen Dewitt about this latest work.
