THE TROJAN WAR

A Slightly Isolated Dog and NCM | REWIRE 2024

THE TROJAN WAR

HILARIOUS | INTERACTIVE | RIDICULOUS

When Paris is born, it is prophesied that he will bring the destruction of the city.

To avoid this fate, he is sent away to be sacrificed. But this starts a series of events that will inevitably lead to the destiny his parents were so desperately trying to avoid. THE TROJAN WAR tells the story of the tragic fall of Troy.

The final instalment of the successful works from A Slightly Isolated Dog,
THE TROJAN WAR is a raucous celebration of our ridiculous lives: combining theatrical magic, wicked pop songs and fierce wit to playfully explore questions around the current chaos of our times.

ABOUT A SLIGHTLY ISOLATED DOG

Since the company began the ethos has been to create theatre that doesn’t feel like “theatre.” A Slightly Isolated Dog (ASID)'s overall artistic vision focuses on evolving the form of theatre to engage the ever-evolving needs of audiences in new and unique ways.

All works aim to create a space for communal reflection and celebration through live performance. But ASID aim to more directly and intimately include the audience in that process of reflecting and celebrating.

Thus, ASID build more profound relationships with our audience by creating high quality works that fill needed purposes in innovative, unique and (they always must be) entertaining ways.

ASID works exist on a spectrum, from highly explosive to extremely intimate and thoughtful experiences. Some pieces have broader commercial appeal while others speak to a more distinct audience. ASID shows are inclusive experiences where audiences actively contribute to the live action as it develops.
