3 Greek Myths from a Lisbon Laundry

Platform 4 mixed its myths and came up with a joyeous cacophony of cross dressing washer-women, squawking seagulls and cheeky cherubs.

Ingredients included:
Some Watery Greek Myths
A Lisbon Laundry
Soap Suds
Anarchic Performers
A Surreal Soundtrack
Spoonfuls of Humour and Charm
Sumptuous Images

Platform 4 used the pictures on Portuguese storytelling tiles (azulejos) to take us to a world surrounded by water - where men turned to dolphins and women became exotic flowers.

This was a world where Bacchus provided the bar and Aurora the catering, where we were all touched by the transforming power of love and where the laundry was never done...

This production was inspired by a Go & See Travel Grant from the Portuguese Arts Trust.
