Company of Wolves re-imagines the myth of Achilles in a heart-stopping solo performance by Ewan Downie.
Achilles tells the story of the greatest hero of the Greeks during the Trojan War: how his best friend is killed by the champion of the Trojans, his desperate grief, and his terrible vengeance. In a fusion of storytelling, dance and song, Achilles is the story of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his vulnerability, his rage, and his humanity.
Achilles will be performed at the Citizens Theatre 23-27 January 2018, and manipulate Visual Theatre Festival on 30 January 2018. See below for booking information.
