INTERACTIVE THEATRE COMES TO BRISTOL
Follow the infamous Greek myth of Homer’s Odyssey like never before with this modern day interpretation. The Trinity Centre will be hosting performances of The Ithaca Axis from April 23rd - May 5th 2013, drawing a close to The Centre’s Art Council funded community project: Bridges.
This part-performance, part-adventure hopes to generate excitement, enthusiasm and exploration for all involved.
The Ithaca Axis aims to be a distinctive piece of theatre, transforming the way the average perception of being an audience member is understood. During the running of this production, the centre of Bristol will be the heart of the show with several diverse, live locations animated by groups of performers.
Director, Nick Young, states; “This is the culmination of a lot of hard work with some of Bristol’s finest creative minds and a fantastic experience that has challenged the team to explore new avenues for their work. Using Bristol’s history entwined with current events as the backdrop for our story, this is a show that is unique to Bristol and its story.”
By taking the audience on an emotional and physical journey, The Ithaca Axis aspires to stand aside from other theatre productions and generate interest from people of any age, gender or walks of life.
Netty Miles, the play’s Producer, commented: “This is an exciting project for Trinity and taking inspiration from the Greek myths and bringing it slap bang into the current Bristolian locale and culture, The Ithaca Axis creates a potent hybrid of professional and community drama. Creating a multi location event delivered via four simultaneous stories is achieved by engaging the best of our inimitable Bristol talent.”
With expectations that this piece aims to be a one of the top-ranking theatrical events of this year, there is no excuse but to attend and find yourself transported into a world where what you once knew about Bristol is no more.
