Fiona Shaw - Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Old Vic Tunnels
Fiona Shaw and dancer Daniel Hay-Gordon will perform Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, at The Old Vic Tunnels, hidden beneath Waterloo Station, from 4 - 13 January 2013
It is directed by Phyllida Lloyd, choreographed by Kim Brandstrup, designed by Chloe Obolensky, lighting by Jean Kalman, sound by Mel Mercier. Co production from Young Vic Theatre, Fitzroy Productions, The Athens and Epidaurus Festival and BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music).
Director Phyllida Lloyd says: "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is the theatre of our childhood – of rhymes and sticks and a rope – a world where small things carry vast meaning. Two performers make this story hang in the air for just a moment, to live on only in the memory of the audience. We premiered the work at the Athens and Epidaurus Festival earlier this year and are delighted to share it again with audiences in London."
