Orpheus & Eurydice

Four Clowns presents a workshop adaptation of Orpheus & Eurydice with physical theatre and clowning

Tuesday, March 21 at 7:30pm

Join the award-winning clown troupe, Four Clowns, as they present their first workshop presentation of a physical retelling of Orpheus and Eurydice. It’s a journey of love, grief, and the fleeting nature of happiness. A multi-disciplinary chorus of clowns explore this ancient tale using classical Greek text, imagery, movement, live music, and just a touch of buffoonery. With Orpheus and Eurydice at the helm, this workshop weaves through the tales of the ancient Greeks, exploring the poetic, the mystic, and the downright absurd. It’s Greek mythology with all weird stuff kept in!
