Artist Seth Kriebel on the tales that have lasted over 1,500 years.

This event takes place at the British Library.

The Death of King Arthur with artist and producer Seth Kriebel is a new version of a very old story, an interactive twist on the enduringly popular tales of Arthur and his knights.Choose which parts of the story you want to hear: the bit about the sword in the stone? Lancelot & Guinevere? How Arthur dies?

Or the other version of how Arthur dies?

…or the other other version?

Sit back and enjoy or actively take part in the decisions that guide the story. Each show is unique, depending on the audience’s choices… bringing a lost Britain back to life and asking what the old tales can tell us in these complicated times. Examining British identity, our relationship with Europe and ‘fake news’, The Death of King Arthur explodes the legend we all think we know and asks: What story do you want to believe?

Artist and producer Seth Kriebel’s interactive retelling of Beowulf has been presented across England in venues and festivals including Birmingham Literature Festival and Battersea Arts Centre. It has toured extensively and was selected as part of the Farnham Maltings House Theatre programme. His performance-games The Unbuilt Room, A House Repeated and We This Way have been presented in venues including Brighton International Festival, Battersea Arts Centre, Turner Contemporary, The Science Museum and Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery and continue to tour nationally.

This activity is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

This event will not be live-streamed.
