In this reimagining of a Greek myth, a beautiful mechanical puppet struggles to move a colossal, burdensome stone. Doomed with the hopeless task of pushing the rock up a hill, he is condemned to watch it roll back each day. Trapped in an endless cycle, the man wrestles with his pointless existence cursing the futility of life.

Augmented by hand drawn, earthy animation, Boulder fuses live and digital, all accompanied by live cello, atmospheric voices and original music. Within this intriguing blend emerges fluid transformations of set and scale as this trickster strains at the confines of his situation.

Boulder is supported by The Marlowe and co-commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre & Arts Council England.
