Achilles

 

sing goddess

sing the rage of achilles

that sent to darkness so many souls

and glazed their eyes in death

that made their bodies carrion

for the birds and dogs to tear

their families wait forever

for their coming home

Description

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.
