One actor. One hour. One man’s epic quest to reunite with his family and seek his bloody revenge.

Up against the God Poseidon and his hurricanes; nymphs that sexually enslave him; countless characters, creatures and ferocious one-eyed monsters; whatever hardship he endures, Odysseus’ tough heart won’t give in. But after twenty year’s away from home will everything be as he left it…?

FIVE STAR REVIEWS AT LONDON PREMIERE OF LIGHT
Following its sell-out, critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014, our five star dystopian sci-fi thriller London Premiered at The Pit, Barbican as part of the 2015 London International Mime Festival.
Inspired by Edward Snowden’s revelations and the ensuing debate on state surveillance, Theatre Ad Infinitum conjures an Orwellian future where a totalitarian regime monitors the thoughts of its citizens through implants. Charged with hunting down ‘terrorists’ who seek illegal disconnection, a young government agent encounters an enigmatic figure from his shadowy past.
Blending anime-style storytelling and a pulsating soundscape to draw audiences into its sci-fi realm, this is a nightmarish tale of love, betrayal and technological power. LED strip and torchlight innovatively illuminate the wordless production, atmospherically set in darkness.
We’ll continue to update the press response below as it comes in:
The Times ★★★★★ – “High-octane mime… a pint sized epic”
