north east scotland's festival of new music

Prometheus: A River Stained with Iron

Prometheus: A River Stained with IronNo one dreams of civilisation in Paradise

Physical theatre practitioner Philip Knight and experimental musician Mike Gosling collaborate on this exploration of the Prometheus myth and its relationship to thought, creativity and personal ritual.

Devised from a series of poems written as a meditation on the story of fire being stolen from the gods, the performance explores the idea of freedom in a universe filled with mystery and power.

Nothing is fixed - each performance is a living event. The performer and musician simultaneously reacting to each other and the text in a continual improvisation. A search to find a balance that most efficiently expresses what the words might mean.
