Muriel Louveau : Prayer before Birth, Persephone
The Song “Prayer before Birth , Persephone” has been co composed by Muriel Louveau and English cellist Tanera Dawkins. The video featuring Muriel\’s performance has been created by visual artist Holly Warburton for the multi media show Edda , inspired by the ancient iceland saga which tells the story of Creation and within that the 4 elements , water, air , earth ,fire. That piece draws into the theme of metamorphosis through the greek myth of Persephone.
