Created with Candoco Dance Company with support from the British Council
The culmination of the British Council’s four-year programme Unlimited: Making the Right Moves, The Argonauts looks at how we build our sense of individual and collective identity through the telling and re-telling of stories. It’s a piece about the mythical and the mundane and how they are much closer than we think.
The Argonauts was created in collaboration with Candoco Dance Company and the British Council and premiered on 25 September 2019 in Tbilisi, Georgia during the UK/Georgia 2019: New Horizons cultural season. It then toured to Baku, Azerbaijan and Yerevan, Armenia.
