Ewan Downie Creative Lab


Glasgow’s acclaimed Company of Wolves re-imagines the myth of Achilles in a heart-stopping solo performance by Ewan Downie. Fusing storytelling, dance and song, Achilles is the story of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his vulnerability, his rage, and his humanity. Achilles grew out of a period of focussed research into the relationship of words and movement in performance, funded by Creative
Scotland. This Dance House residency is the last stage of development of the
show prior to performances at the Citizens Theatre and manipulate Visual
Theatre Festival.

Company of Wolves is Scotland’s only laboratory theatre
company, led by Ewan Downie and Anna Porubcansky. We make performance by
experiment, using elements of theatre, dance, music and improvisation to craft
unique and compelling pieces that speak directly to the times in which we live.

Achilles is supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland
