Show Details

Where the water ends and the sky begins, that's where I'll fly.

 

By Katrin Lange
Translated by Purni Morell
Directed by Cressida Brown

 

Here, where pleasant cottages stand colourful in the friendly village and a gentle breeze wafts through the air, children play in the square laughing and shouting – but Icarus, oldest son of the builder Daedalus, does not play with them. He sits looking out over the sea and thinks about his father.

 

His country is in turmoil. His family is falling apart. His father, far away across the sea, is forced to work for the tyrannical King Minos. What can one boy do against injustice? Will he save his family? Will he save his father? Will he save himself?


 
A bold, contemporary and playful take on the ancient myth.

The Unicorn Theatre is the UK’s leading theatre for audiences aged 2-21, serving over 50,000 children, young people and families every year through its professional performances, participation and other events.

Founded in 1947 by Caryl Jenner, the company originally operated out of the back of a van, and toured theatre for children into schools and community centres. The Unicorn was subsequently based at the Arts Theatre in London’s West End for many years, before moving into its current home at London Bridge in 2005.

Today, the Unicorn building has two theatres, two rehearsal rooms and four floors of public space dedicated to producing and presenting work for audiences aged 2 to 21.

It is a central part of the Unicorn’s mission to commission new work, to tour, to be accessible to all and to encourage exchange and collaboration between theatre-makers from different countries and traditions, coming together to develop ideas and projects.
