BAZ Productions is delighted to announce PROPHESY, a devised project supported by the Arts Council:

Blackall Studios, 73 Leonard Street, Shoreditch, London EC2A 4QS.

5th Feb to 2nd March 2013 @ 7.30pm & Saturday Matinee @ 3pm

Press Night – Thursday 7th February 2013

Helen, aged 12, meets a strange man

Paris, aged 10, is a stranger in his own family

Neither is prepared for the future that is coming

When Theseus arrives in Sparta, Helen finds herself amused by his attention – a welcome distraction from the lonely world she inhabits with her younger sister Cly and cousin Penelope. As his interest grows, Helen must fight to regain control of her world.

Paris has returned to Troy after his banishment as a baby. Struggling to adapt and determined not to conform to the control he sees around him, Paris must learn the rules of this new world surrounded by a family he has nothing in common with.

Set in the two contrasting worlds of ‘Troy’ and ‘Sparta’, PROPHESY explore the moments in Paris and Helen’s childhood they receive the unexpected prophesies that will determine their future and bring about the complete destruction of their world. Can a knowledge of our future prove self-fulfilling, and in a battle of fate and freewill, is it ever truly possible to change?

Taking characters from the classic Greek Myths in settings not unlike modern Britain, PROPHESY investigates the notion of self-identity in children: the roles they take on, the expectations they have and the choices they make.

Devised by the ensemble, PROPHESY has been developed through improvisation and physical theatre and will run in the gallery space at Blackall Studios. BAZ Productions has built a reputation for powerful and unique work in non-theatrical spaces, established in their award nominated Macbeth in the Crypt of St. Andrew, Holborn in 2011.
