2700 years ago, Sappho is the world's first love poet, the tenth muse of the ancient Greeks, and the inspiration for every lovelorn writer and songster since

But as the centuries have passed with the coming and goings of hundreds of libidinous handymen restoring her buttresses, history has caught up with Sappho

Her tale has become a gap in time for new generations to pour their needs and desires into, but what is the truth behind her own story?

Placed alongside a modern love story of sensuality, sexual awakening and broken-hearts, Sappho... in 9 fragments exposes the timeless undoing of love

'And the stars around the moon looked away, hid their radiant jewels, as she bathed the whole world with her luminous glow. I do not know what to do; my mind has shattered in two'
