Overview

In this reimagining of the Greek myth, a beautiful mechanical puppet is doomed with the hopeless task of pushing a colossal stone up a hill. Trapped in an endless cycle, the man wrestles with his pointless existence, cursing the futility of life.

Award-winning Half a String fuse transforming sets, puppetry and hand-drawn animation, all accompanied by live cello, atmospheric voices and original music.

Supported by The Marlowe. Co-commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre and ACE.
