Created by Alexander Wright (The Flanagan Collective) and Phil Grainger (Gobbledigook), ORPHEUS is an internationally award-winning show wound together from hair-raising spoken word and soaring soul music.
It's a modern retelling of the ancient myth, transporting us through dive bars, back streets and late-night karaoke. It's a show about falling in love, about seismic shifts in your everyday life, and about how far we'd want to go to save those we hold so near and dear. It's a 5,000-year-old story, but told for us, here, now. Performed by a storyteller and a musician, the tale is wound together from a guitar and a book, and the audience. Told through a fusion of hair
raising spoken word and original, live, soulful music, ORPHEUS sits in between spoken word poetry, an acoustic gig and a theatre show.
We created ORPHEUS to play anywhere and everywhere.
The show premiered in the garden of a Dutch cheese shop in Cromarty. Since then it's played in houses, pubs, halls, shops, tunnels, libraries, foyers, bars, empty lofts and — very occasionally — a theatre.
ORPHEUS won Best Theatre (weekly) award at the Adelaide Fringe and the Summerhall Award at VAULT Festival.
