But I do not treat you as an omen of my journey’
Legendary theatre company Punchdrunk (The Drowned Man, Sleep No More, Masque of the Red Death) is to stage a brand new production inspired by the remaining fragments of Aeschylus’ lost play The Kabeiroi this Autumn.
Directed by Punchdrunk artistic director Felix Barrett, Kabeiroi will take place across London from 26 September – 5 November 2017.
In a break from the company’s recognised format of mask shows played in found spaces in front of big audiences, Kabeiroi will take place in multiple locations across London and audiences will experience the show in groups of just two.
The ancient Greek tragedy about the women of Lemnos, written between 499 and 456 BC, is the middle play of a trilogy by Aeschylus and survives in just three mysterious fragments. Using what remains as a starting point, Punchdrunk will place audiences at the heart of the narrative over an extended six hour period.
Tickets for Kabeiroi are extremely limited. To ensure they are allocated as fairly as possible, audiences are invited to enter a ticket ballot which will open on 5 September at 12 noon. The ballot will close on Sunday 10 September at 6pm.
