THE IRON MAN THE IRON MAN
by Ted Hughes
adapted for Graeae by Paul Sirett
directed by Jenny Sealey
Greenwich+Docklands International Festival
St Alfege's Churchyard
Hogarth and his mates gather in a scrap yard to recount the remarkable tales of THE IRON MAN.
Once upon a time, but not too long ago, the unexpected arrival of THE IRON MAN cast a shadow of fear across our small farm community. Together we struggled to trap this giant foe and stop his insatiable hunger for metal. But, when an enormous dragon from outer space threatened to annihilate our planet, it was THE IRON MAN who valiantly came to our rescue.
Against a backdrop of celestial soundscapes, a deaf and disabled ensemble spins the story with words, signs and an audio descriptive narrative. The Iron Man is a colossal narrative that emerges from the shadows and takes to the air.
Commissioned by Without Walls and Greenwich+Docklands International Festival.
