Love, war, myth and reality: how far have we come from the days of Achilles?
Inspired by Homer’s Iliad, with its tales of Troy, of heartbreak and of devastation, NMT Automatics, in collaboration with CPUGRD, present: Tempus Fugit. Fusing myth and modern experience, we explore the effects of trauma and war; asking the questions: how and why do we tell battle narratives, and how do they affect our perception of warfare and the roles of soldiers and their partners, both present and past? In this workshop we unpick the processes that combine movement, mask, music, text, and academic research to create relevant and vital work.
Join us and our collaborators Andres Velasquez, Jon Hesk @Heskers, Alice Konig @KonigAlice on the 19th August FREE Tickets and info http://armyatthefringe.org/virtual #AATVF
