We Are The Minotaur

An exploration of the people and rules that frighten and influence us.

Summer 2011

An uncompromising reinvention of the ancient myth of the Minotaur; a playful and subversive retelling of this story told by those sacrificed to the beast encased in the vast labyrinth; an exploration of the people and rules that frighten and influence us and how we might challenge them to affect change.

The first in a series of works which explores fear, desire, revolution and control found in the original myth of The Minotaur. Conceptually and creatively spearheaded by KILN, the resulting promenade performance throughout mac’s indoor and outside spaces, was created through a participatory process which, over a summer term, brought together an eclectic ensemble of students, amateurs and professional performers, musicians and designers.



Co-produced by mac birmingham & KILN, with financial support from the Sir Barry Jackson Trust.
