It’s a modern retelling of the ancient myth; it’s a 5,000 year-old story, but told for us, here, now. Performed by a storyteller and a musician, the story is wound together form a guitar and abook, and the audience. Told through a fusion of hair-raising spoken word and original, live, soulful music, ORPHEUS sits in between spoken word poetry, an acoustic gig and a theatre show.
ORPHEUS won Best Theatre (weekly) at the Adelaide fringe and the Summerhall Award at VAULT Festival.
