A ground breaking production from Guildhall, 'Tales From Ovid' was an epic and physical piece adapted from Ted Hughes collection, comprised of various short stories from The Metamorphoses that heavily explored the concept of 'The Group'. With an impressive set, the actors dressed in Japanese Hakama pants and body painted white portrayed strong physical images to compliment the dark and often gory short stories.

Gavin played HERMAPHRODITUS, a young and innocent boy lusted after by the water nymph SALMACIS and they eventually merge into one being, portrayed through an intense, beautiful and acrobatic dance sequence.
