Achilles

About Achilles

Glasgow’s Company of Wolves re-imagines the myth of Achilles in a heartstopping solo performance by Ewan Downie.

Achilles tells the story of the greatest hero of the Greeks during the Trojan War: how his best friend is killed by the champion of the Trojans, his desperate grief, and his terrible vengeance. In a fusion of storytelling, dance and song, Achilles is the story of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his vulnerability, his rage, and his humanity. Company of Wolves is Scotland’s only laboratory theatre company, making performance by experiment, using elements of theatre, dance, music and improvisation to craft unique and compelling pieces that speak directly to the times in which we live.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Achilles are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
