Becoming Shades is a dark, immersive and enthralling retelling of the classic myth Persephone, bringing together live music, aerial acrobatics, fire, dance and mime.

Running from: Wed 24 Jan - Sun 18 Mar 2018.

“One by one they were all becoming shades. Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.” James Joyce – The Dead

Becoming Shades is a show that takes the audience on a journey through the dark heart of the Vaults in Waterloo, where the long tunnel of the cavern is transformed into Hades. Experience the courtship of Persephone and Hades following her descent to his domain, loss of freedom and finally her decision to rule as his Queen.

Bringing together live music, aerial acrobatics, fire, dance and mime, Chivaree Circus brings you this story of empowerment, love and choices: a re-imagining of the classic myth of Persephone told through contemporary circus.
