Presented with Four Clowns

Plato's Orpheus

Four Clowns presents a workshop adaptation of Plato's Orpheus with physical theatre and clowning

Saturday, March 21 at 7:30pm

The remaining Noise Now performances through April have been canceled. We are working to reschedule our March and April Noise Now events for a later date. For more information, click here.

Join the award-winning clown troupe, Four Clowns, as they present their first workshop presentation of a physical retelling of Plato’s Orpheus. 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!

Running Time: 1 hour with no intermission
