For the Love of Riddles

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:30 pm on 3 April 2017

Kiwi poet, wordsmith and legend, Bill Manhire has been looking at the mystery of the riddle. He's translated Old English riddles, put them to song, and they are being performed this week, as part of the Festival of Colour. The settings range from meditative ballad to joyful stomp. Bill talks about his new work, Tell Me My Name.
