Sisyphus Distressing


Produced and presented by Metapraxis Ensemble
Language: English with BSL interpretation
Running time: 60 minutes

Sisyphus Distressing is a dynamic sonic theatre project, built around the myth of Sisyphus, as it was seen through the eyes of Albert Camus. Composed by Gregory Emfietzis (Greece/UK) and devised by the Metapraxis Ensemble (UK), it consists of 7 sounding and muted acts, combining video, text (in English), acting/movement and construction/design.

This second part of Emfietzis’s work on Sisyphus (watch Sisyphus Victimised performed by the LSO), explores endless repetition and meaninglessness, struggle and failure, as well as (some sort of controversial) hope for what might come next: the realisation that life is absurd cannot be an end, but only a beginning.
