How do we protect the people we love?
The Whole Bright Year is underpinned by the Greek mythology of Demeter and her daughter Persephone. It’s a story about the urge to safeguard the people we love but still allow them to go out into the perilous world. A mother protecting her daughter, children shielding their parents from pain, a sister trying to rescue her brother, young lovers yearning to save each.
