Dance House Glasgow Ewan Downie: Achilles

Fri 19 January 2018

Ewandownie 7k1i

Due to unforeseen circumstances this event has been cancelled.

Glasgow’s acclaimed Company of Wolves re-imagines the myth of Achilles in a heart-stopping solo performance by Ewan Downie. Fusing 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 grew out of a period of focussed research into the relationship of words and movement in performance, funded by Creative Scotland. This Dance House residency is the last stage of development of the show prior to performances at the Citizens Theatre and manipulate Visual Theatre Festival.

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.

Achilles is supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland.

Join Ewan in the studio at the end of this stage of his research and development.

In association with Dance House Glasgow, Platform, Citizens Theatre, manipulate Visual Theatre Festival, and Puppet Animation Scotland.
