|Description||EUROPEAN PREMIERE. One month tour of Britain Sep-Oct 1988.
"... The kaleidoscope of images - .....a woman slowly swinging an axe, a manic chorus of six twitching and laughing performers moving cautiously across stage like some ship on an ocean of tears - all arrive from the deep well of Greek theatre, from the violent death of Agamemnon at the hands of Clytemnestra. The performers themselves are dressed in sackcloth greys and body pink - attended on stage by a sculptural chorus of tall trembling red antennae - and accompanied by flutes, bells, taped music and bloody reminiscences.
It is perhaps no accident that this company of visual musicians- whose instruments are their bodies- hails from Australia...", Arts Guardian, (Manchester).
The staging is stylish, colourful, intense and superbly well drilled, with some terrific moments of climax.
(there is a) continuity of purpose which will carry the audience from one coup de theatre to the next.”. Glasgow Herald.
