Al Seed - Plinth
Renowned visual theatre maker Al Seed presents his latest striking work Plinth, which examines the role and re-appraisal of statues.
At the heart of Plinth is an exploration of statues as artefacts of war, particularly with reference to the archetypal image of the ‘hero’. Within the performance, Seed reimagines the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur - perhaps the ultimate story of ‘hero’ versus ‘other’.
Plinth is the latest in a series of performances Al Seed has created around the theme of conflict and the politics of its remembrance, the last of these being Oog which won the Total Theatre Award for Best Visual / Physical Theatre at the Edinburgh Fringe.
This world premiere, co-produced with Vanishing Point, is full of rich imagery and astonishing movement.
