Hyperion

A bunker on a Greek island. A conscript keeping watch. Alone. His mission: to guard the border for 3 days. Three days later, no-one shows up. No replacement, no pick-up, no-one. What now?

A one-man-show delving into Greece's past and present, questioning our sense of belonging and the forces behind self-exile: why do we leave home?

Hyperion takes the aspect of an experimental collage. A multimedia performance using projection of original film and a loop station to create soundscape; a new piece of writing interweaving the lyrical and the mundane; a physical theatre score in a shrinking solitary space… 'Hyperion' has at its centre a clown performer constantly looking for his own language, one he could be at home with. A clown in a bunker.
