With a spark of life from Zeus Prometheus shapes the beasts of the world out of clay. Growing bored with his chore he endows the last of his creations, people, with a little extra spark. Maybe a bit more than intended. And thus human, titan, and god all find more than they can really cope with. Prometheus and Zeus, unlikely parents, struggle with love, infatuation, fear and much infuriation with their creation. Humanity grows, often barely skirting extinction, being shaped as much by accidents as plans, often relying on tricks to push forward and escape the boring monotony of immortals. The performance combines the technical and artistic achievements of the Performer Flying class and Audio Creative Lab, with original student musical compositions, brought together in pantomime and dance.

Tickets also available at the door.
