About the shows:
Between the Sun & the Sea by Atlas Descending
A young man loses his home and is stuck in limbo.
A boy locked in a tower builds wings to escape.
Inspired by the myth of Icarus, the debut work from Atlas Descending explores imagination as a means of escape. Just as Icarus built wings and flew towards the sun, our hero dreams of flying away.

Medusa by 27 degrees
Through a series of sensory installations, intimate theatre performances, dance, puppetry and music, this immersive site-sensitive piece explores how the story of Medusa resonates with the lives of women in the 21st century. Using the myth as a starting point, the show interrogates the countless contemporary monsters and what it takes for women to be considered a threat.
