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’
Glasgow’s acclaimed 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. Achillesis the story of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his vulnerability, his rage, and his humanity.
Company of Wolves is Scotland’s only laboratory theatre company, led by Ewan Downie and Anna Porubcansky. We make performance by experiment, using elements of theatre, dance, music and improvisation to craft unique and compelling pieces that speak directly to the times in which we live.
FOOD AND TICKET DEAL: Enjoy a Greek pre show dinner provided by Whaligoe Steps Café from 6.30pm.
