“A shadow performance steeped in ancient Egyptian mythology, accompanied by mystical sounds, poetry and song.
The first half of the programme is a play about the cycle of rising and setting of the sun, enacting the relationship between Ra the Sun God and the powerful female deity Isis. The second half concerns the love triangle between the sibling gods Osiris, Isis and Seth, involving love murder and rebirth.”
Doors 7pm | performance 7.30pm | entry £8 cash
