ATLAS – info about the show
ATLAS will retell the Greek myth of Atlas carrying the world, and reflect on themes of responsibility, choice, physical and emotional weight, in particular relating to those with an ‘Atlas personality’ who carried extra responsibilities as children and how this affects their experiences as adults. We will draw from the skills and autobiographies of the performers to reflect what weight we are carrying and how we individually manage it.
