Dance, film, music and text inspired by ancient Greek myths

Infamous Offspring harks back to Greek myths about dysfunctional family ties: power, seduction, aggression, humiliation, exclusion and manipulation are central. The parents – played by, among others, iconic musician Warren Ellis – are filmed characters who interact with their nine-headed on-stage offspring. Flamenco expert Israel Galván, who plays the best friend of the family, communicates only through his rhythmic body expression.
