The Girl with No Hands

Katy Thompson and Rustam Khanmurzin have chosen The Girl with No Hands as their tale around which to build their programme. Katy writes:

I first read the wild story of The Girl with No Hands in the book Women who run with the wolves (Clarissa Pinkola Estes) – I found it fascinating and slightly unnerving. We then discovered how many other people had found inspiration in the weird and wonderful tale (like the poems by Margaret Attwood and Vicki Feaver). The story is such fertile ground for recital ideas, ringing with contemporary resonances. Themes include being lost in the wilderness, isolation, enduring love, the plight of those displaced, the power of matriarchs, recovering from trauma… the list goes on!
