Like Orpheus is a candid dive into queer club culture and the trauma of sexual assault. Told through poetic text, raw movement and evocative soundscape Like Orpheus jumps around in time and place like a cacophony of thoughts and dreams happening at once. The show follows two narratives; a violent assault of a young boy dancing in an underground club and years later when he is haunted by reoccurring visions of his traumatic past. Through fragments of a chance meeting between a man and his younger self the two stories collide and the lines of fantasy and reality are blurred immersing the audience inside a waking dream. Using a Greek myth as an entry point, Like Orpheus addresses issues within the queer community – asking us to intentionally look back and face the trauma of our past.

Note, this show contains strobe lighting effects.

This show is produced by Theatre Outré (Lethbridge) as part of Intrepid Theatre's OUTstages Festival (Feb 8-16, 2020). See [intrepidtheatre.com] for details. Latecomers may not be admitted.
