‘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’

 

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.
