  • 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.

    sing goddess
    sing 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

    A fusion of storytelling, dance and song, tells of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his vulnerability, his rage, and his humanity.

    Supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland in association with Platform, Dance House and Citizens Theatre.

    This performance will be part of manipulate Visual Theatre Festival in 2018 produced by Puppet Animation Scotland.
