Al Seed Productions and Vanishing Point present:

by Al Seed

Presented in partnership with Beacon Arts Centre and Tramway

At the heart of Plinth is an exploration of statues, specifically when they are artefacts of war. Explicitly political, the show emphasises the truth-editing processes our culture must engage in to manufacture acceptable ‘heroes’, as embodied in our statues and memorials. In Plinth

Al Seed examines these processes through a reimagining of the myth of Theseus, Ariadne and the Minotaur.

Plinth is the latest in a series of performances Al Seed has created around the theme of war and the politics of its remembrance, the last of these being Oog which won the Total Theatre Award for Best Visual / Physical Theatre at the Edinburgh Fringe.
