Presented by Arrowwood Theatre
As unavoidable as falling is, getting up, dusting off your wings and flying once again is never quite as easy as it seems. ICARUS an original play by Arrowwood Theatre Co., looks at what it means to fail and what it means to try again. Flipping between a modern-day group of friends and the world of ancient Greece, ICARUS investigates the ways we get burned every day, but more importantly — the ways we pick each other up. The show takes a new look at the classic tale, viewing the story through fresh eyes and a modern perspective.
"a fabulous production!" - Theatre Orangeville
"The honed physicality of the performers results in imaginative tableaux that use lifts and group dynamics to make stunning images of flight!"
“It seems as if a storybook is brought to life.”
