The Argonauts is a fragmented retelling of the story of Jason and Medea. Told through words, music and movement. The piece looks at how we build our sense of individual and collective identity through the telling and re-telling of stories. Like the Argonauts repairing their famous boat with pieces of new timber we have replaced parts of this famous story with stories of our own - but the Argo is still the same boat. The mythical and the mundane sometimes look very different but are made up of the same strange fabric that is our emotional lives.
The Argonauts will be followed by Candoco performances Face In, Let's Talk About Dis.
