“Epic and intimate...physical and spiritual...mythological and scientific...Atlas is a truly unique performance piece that not only manages to tie all these diametrically opposed ideas together but does it with style and heart.” Chris Brooker (number9reviews) on ATLAS
Atlas - 1 hour - 3 performers
A boisterous and playful retelling of Atlas, bringing this Greek legend to life in all his immense glory, with a cameo appearance from that classic bad boy Heracles.
In Oddly Moving’s new show three short women will tell the story of a Titan armed with nothing more than the intense physicality of their circus skills, plastic toy animals, sandbags, golden apples and bucketsful of wit and charm.
Directed by Charlotte Mooney of Ockham’s Razor and with Oddly Moving’s unique blend of physical theatre, autobiographical story-telling and circus skills (with a rudimentary understanding of physics) Atlas looks at how we each bear the weight of our personal burdens, our what-ifs, joys, regrets and choices and asks what happens if we let go?
“You have to see Grania in action: she is a highly skilled circus performer, storyteller and connector, lighting up the entire stage.” LucyLovesCircus
Age Guidance: 12+
Atlas is Oddly Moving’s second show, following the successful U.K. tour of debut show He Ain’t Heavy in 2018.
“An incredibly poignant and intimate portrayal of sibling love through puppetry and an aerial swing.” LucyLovesCircus on He Ain’t Heavy
