Bringing light to the experience of living and dying with Alzheimer’s, STYX is a theatre-concert telling the true story of a grandmother and grandson piecing together the memories that connect them across time. Weaving together riotous songs, intimate storytelling and a journey through the neuroscience of memory, the show reveals the extraordinary power music has to reignite fading memories.
STYX was premiered at the Fringe World festival in Perth in January 2019, where it won a Fringe Weekly Award. STYX was nominated for a Total Theatre Award in the Emerging Company category at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2019, and transferred to London for runs at The Playground Theatre and Streatham Space Project, before returning to Perth in January 2020.
“Gorgeously atmospheric, exquisitely lit, ear-tingling journey into the past and memory itself.” – Lyn Gardner
“Rousing, soulful music, at once full of life and mourning” – The Guardian
