‘Quiet intimacy & boyhood wonder’ - THE GUARDIAN
Tickets £10 (£5 children) on door or online at Eventbrite
A lad lives half-way up a historic hill
A teenager is on a road trip to the city in a stolen car
A boy is driving a chariot, pulling the sun across the sky
A story about the son of the god of the sun, HELIOS transplants the Ancient Greek tale into a modern-day myth wound round the the winding roads of rural England and into the everyday living of a towering city. It is a story about life, and about the invisible monuments we build to it.
HELIOS is a collective experience which invites the audience to be part of the story. Told by a single storyteller, with a cinematic score, HELIOS asks us to invest in the micro and the macro - the power of the
sun, and the power of the small things from which we carve our lives.
It’s a story about growing up, about the pride of young boys, and how we define our worlds.
