Event Passed

An imagined festival on an island in the Aegean sea.
An imagined Homer prepares to sing The Iliad.
Percussion and voice recreate Homer`s violence, humour, compassion and lyricism.

James McCaughey and Matthew Horsley continue their journey through the books of The Iliad.

Books 1 – 4 were first performed at the Melbourne Homer Festival.
A season at 11th Hour Theatre followed, to an enthusiastic reception.
Now, the project moves to Books 5 and 6, for two nights only.

Iliad 5: A Perfect Day and Iliad 6: Women And The City

Both books will be performed each night.
