Snakes and Ladders

The writer Sarah Cuddon explores the ancient notion of Snakes and Ladders.

With reference to Salman Rushdie's 'Midnight's Children', the poetry of Dorothy Porter and the work of filmmaker Maya Deren, she examines the way the game mirrors our experience of life and our attitudes towards fate and morality. Featuring music by Radiohead, Erik Satie and Alarm Will Sound.
