Ariadne - A Bold New Dance Work


Friday 7th June, National Theatre, St. Kilda

Ariadne delves into the famous Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.

A wild and angry Minotaur resides in a deep labyrinth of which Princess Ariadne is keeper. When the hero Theseus comes to rescue the group of sacrificial children from the Minotaur, Ariadne devises a plan to help Theseus succeed in his quest and escape the island. Ariadne soon learns that while she can escape an island, she cannot escape from herself.


Told through stunning contemporary dance and live orchestra, you’ll enter a mystical world you’ll never want to leave.


“Totally absorbing. Music and movement so well coordinated. The spirit of the myth was so wonderfully portrayed.”
