David and Goliath
David and Goliath
2 versions: one performer only or 2 performers including live musician. Age suitability: young people and adults.
Duration - 50 minutes
A man stands alone in a strange landscape of tall, animated sculptures made from copper, brass and iron inspired by the 3,000-year old sculptures and designs of unknown masters from the Middle East. Punctuated by a powerful soundscape which features ancient instruments such as drums, horns and bells, David and Goliath reinterprets the famous Biblical story of a young shepherd's victorious encounter with the enemy, and his love for the beautiful, elusive Susannah. This haunting visual poem from the dawn of the Iron Age can be performed in German or English but its visual impact transcends language barriers. The production works well in theatres but is even more effective in the atmospheric context of a dusk-lit setting such as a courtyard or disused quarry.
