Cyclops! archiveWritten in 408 BC. The only surviving satyr play from Ancient Greece. It tells how the hero Odysseus, on his way home from the Trojan war, defeats the one-eyed cannibalistic giant Polyphemus with the help of some shipwrecked satyrs - the half-man, half-goat followers of Dionysos, god of wine and theatre - and their wine-loving "father," Silenus. Thiasos brings this rarely-performed classic to life with vibrant song and dance drawn from the traditions of the Aegean and Mediterranean islands. There is heroism and suspense and plenty of earthy humour. In a new version, the company breathes new life into Euripides' 2000 year-old masterpiece, presenting its long-awaited modern world premiere. With a fun mixture of actors, puppets and live original music, Cyclops! tells the adventures of the brave warrior Odysseus and his crew, as they encounter the giant one-eyed monster on their long journey home from the Trojan War.
