Company of Wolves re-imagines the myth of Achilles in a heart-stopping solo performance.

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

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, Achilles is the story of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his vulnerability, his rage, and his humanity.
