Adrian Johnston:

Twenty-five years after legendary dance icon Lloyd Newson (DV8) first staged his brutally honest show on British pub culture, Rambert & Sadler’s Wells revived, in collaboration with the choreographer, this landmark physical theatre production, which has lost none of its validity. Enter Achilles was performed in 18 countries, and its television adaptation won an Emmy and a Prix Italia.
A pub, eight men inside, a jukebox and lots of pints always make for a heady brew. But all this goes only so far to guarantee success. A reviewer found it “a rare, rich, devastating, triumphant work of art… Dramatic coherence, human integrity, irresistible visual power, were all there in the most outstanding work I have seen all year.” Another critic though it was “violent, ugly, politically incorrect and hilarious.”

Not recommended for audiences under the age of 15.

This performance of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre and Trafó House of Contemporary Arts.
