The Argonauts is a dance performance by the disabled and non-disabled dancers from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Ukraine.

The British Council, in partnership with Candoco Dance Company, and Lost Dog, presented The Argonauts, the culmination of our four-year Unlimited: Making the Right Moves programme. With the Argonauts, the UK/Georgia 2019 season showcases how ten professional and non-professional, disabled and non-disabled performers from different countries - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Ukraine - can work together. The result is a professional performance produced in just over 20 days during three residencies held in Kyiv between June and September 2019.

Times: 25 September 2019, 20.00
Location(s): Kote Marjanishvili State Drama Theatre

The Argonauts is the creation of Lost Dog’s Artistic Director Ben Duke, working in collaboration with artists Welly O’Brien and Jemima Hoadley and producer Ellie Douglas-Allan of Candoco Dance Company.

The 20-minute performance “looks at how we build our sense of individual and collective identity through the telling and re-telling of stories. It is a piece about the mythical and the mundane and how they are much closer than we think” (Ben Duke, Artistic Director, Lost Dog).
