Performance storytelling by Ben Haggarty
Music by Jonah Brody
No remembering without forgetting...
No rebirth without death...
No ascent without descent...
These are the mysteries.
Storyteller Ben Haggarty, and musician Jonah Brody, become guides to the dark places of the underground ... In this subterranean city of dreams hear the awe filled tale of Dionysus - born once from his mother and again from Zeus; wonder at the tragic tale of Orpheus who could only experience love through separation, and despair at the selfishness of the Sky Gods who bestow the chaos through which we must wade to find sense.
Ben Haggarty reads between the lines of Greek Mythology and restores them to their terrifying and truly awesome glory. This is world-class storytelling - dark, magical and provocative.
Whatever you do - don't look back...
