Like Orpheus is a candid dive into queer club culture and the trauma of sexual assault. Told through poetic text, raw movement and evocative soundscape Like Orpheus jumps around in time and place like a cacophony of thoughts and dreams happening at once. The show follows two narratives; a violent assault of a young boy dancing in an underground club and years later when he is haunted by reoccurring visions of his traumatic past. Through fragments of a chance meeting between a man and his younger self the two stories collide and the lines of fantasy and reality are blurred immersing the audience inside a waking dream. Using a Greek myth as an entry point, Like Orpheus addresses issues within the queer community – asking us to intentionally look back and face the trauma of our past.
Note – this show contains strobe lighting effects.“…a stunning one of a kind performance.” – Fringe Review Ireland
