Invulnerable Nothing's most recent performance at the intersection of theatre and poetry, CrowPlay takes the Badb in Irish folklore, 2013 intelligence studies around corvidae neurobiology from University Tubingen, and Ted Hughes' Crow: From the Life and Songs of the Crow as its starting points. This original devised work explores the mythic symbolism of the crow through a shifting series of rituals and tableaux. CrowPlay owes its shape to a generous research and development process over October/November 2017 at both Theatre Deli London and Centrespace Bristol.
Hippo, playwright Lily Akerman's inventive reimagining of Euripedes' Hippolytus, will have its world premier as the opener of The Wells Theatre Festival on July 12-15, 2018 in The Bishop's Barn, a 15th c. tithing barn at the center of England's smallest city. A limited tour of the U.K. will follow throughout July and August, with dates in Bath, Bristol, London, and Edinburgh before a projected New York run in September 2018.
The original text will undergo a full development process at Hunter College-The City University of New York in March/April 2018 overseen by Obie-award winning American playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and culminating in a fully produced rehearsed reading of the play on April 18, 2018.
Hippo is the first installment in a three-part series of full length Greek adaptations written by Akerman and produced by Invulnerable Nothings.
