When a god walks the earth, what rules apply?


Sound artist Sam Enthoven and rising storytellers Laura Sampson and Laurence Ashcroft guide us through the ecstasies and debaucheries of Dionysus / Bacchus. Through the interaction of live sound and spoken word we explore the wild and
wondrous stories of how this chaotic god plays with mortal people.
Sounds of the living city will combine with the conjuring powers of the tellers to
invoke ships to sprout branches, pirates to become dolphins and ecstatic crowds to chase
down the scent of blood.
Dionysus / Bacchus. Have you met them?
