“Pericles Redux” is described as An Epic Shakespearean Odyssey performed by a cast of athletic performers on a bare stage, whose bodies transform the space into the vast and mythic backdrop of a timeless story. In the artistic tradition of Grotowski, Pilobolus, Fellini, Cirque du Soleil and Monty Python comes an innovative brand of storytelling. Not Man Apart – physical theatre ensemble and director John Farmanesh-Bocca present an electrifying reconstruction that literally flies from the sublime to the ridiculous.
