BACCHAEFULL (in the city)

Sample from soundtrack 

BACCHAEFULL responds to the Ancient Greek myth with personal explorations of joy, violence, altered states and alter egos.  It is a contemporary piece of total theatre that asks its audience whether they dare surrender to chaos and unreason.

"Dirty Market Theatre Company’s scintillating production is a brilliant exploration of Euripides’ original, played with great conviction." - What’s on Stage 

"Bacchae is shocking and ambiguous, and Dirty Market Theatre's production embellishes the play but preserves its power." - The Culture Show 

"...Dirty Market Theatre is a lively company with good ideas and strong performers. Their innovative dynamism is certainly promising and bodes well for an exciting future."- Curtain Up 

"...the overall impression is one of magnetic chaos and subtle power games. Definitely a play that needs experiencing." - Extra! Extra! 

The Old Abattoir, 187 - 211 St. John's Street, London.

Earthquake

"A gust of wind rocks the city like an earthquake "The ordinary world is almost instantaneously replaced, not only with a hallucination, but a hallucination whose alien character is its utter alienness. Nothing in this world can prepare you for this You feel your skin is crawling or you feel nothing, not even pain from a real injury."
