Reimagining forgotten folk tales as modern-day feminist fables
Stylist and Audible have teamed up to give away 100 pairs of tickets to Audible Live: Hag on the 31 August, an exciting new interactive exhibition in London, which brings to life eight short stories from a collection of award-winning authors and Sunday Times best-sellers.
Featuring a mix of art installations, sound-rich listening experiences and interactive displays, Audible Live: Hag is designed to showcase Hag – an Audible Original short story collection which reframes obscure British folk tales as modern-day feminist fables.
Hosted at Phonica Records (The Vinyl Factory), Soho, each meticulously designed space provides visitors with an immersive, Instagram-ready experience which brings these eight short stories to life.
Authors include Liv Little (gal-dem founder and Editor), Daisy Johnson (youngest ever nominee of the Man Booker Prize), Eimear McBride (Bailey’s Women’s Prize For Fiction-winner), Kirsty Logan (Lamda Literary Award-winner), Naomi Booth (Sunday Times Short Story Award-nominee), Emma Glass (International Dylan Thomas Prize-nominee), Natasha Carthew (Carnegie Award-nominee) and Mahsuda Snaith (Bristol Short Story Prize-winner).
Curated by Professor Carolyne Larrington, a specialist in Old Norse legends and British fairy tales at St John’s College, Oxford, Hag catalogues the early myths and legends that have shaped the UK’s storytelling heritage, modernizing these forgotten fables with new queer, feminist, working-class and diverse perspectives.
