Scotland’s acclaimed Company of Wolves reimagines the myth of Achilles in a heart-stopping solo performance. Fusing storytelling, movement and song, Achilles is the epic story of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his grief, his rage and his humanity. Company of Wolves are a laboratory theatre company based in Glasgow. They make performance by experiment, using elements of theatre, dance, music and improvisation to craft unique and compelling pieces that speak directly to the times in which we live.
