Tuesday 28 January 2014 to Sunday 02 February 2014
Bios, Athens & Principal Club Theater, Thessaloniki

By Third Angel and mala voadora
A co-production with Sheffield Theatres & Teatro Maria Matos, Lisbon
In association with Worldmapper.org

In partnership with Bios, we invite you to What I Heard About The World, an absorbing new show by the consistently innovative performance-makers Third Angel on their first visit to Greece: see them in Thessaloniki at Principal Club Theater and in Athens at Bios.

What I Heard About The World is a thought-provoking and entertaining attempt to describe a world that seems to get bigger by the day. Sharing seemingly extraordinary (but true) stories about places where you can buy a cure for loneliness on CD, rent strangers to cry at your funeral, listen to a radio station that broadcasts silence and visit real mountains covered in fake snow, the show investigates the whole question of ‘storytelling’. As we attempt to negotiate and find our place in a media-saturated ‘global village’, what stories are we drawn to, how are they transmitted to us, and what do we do with the information they give us?

Established in Sheffield in 1995, Third Angel’s work draws on the small concerns and personal battles of daily life. Using everyday language and familiar human experiences, the company makes entertaining and original contemporary performance that is infused with popular culture and speaks directly, honestly and engagingly to its audience. Bridging the gap between new writing and live art, the company’s output also encompasses installation, film and video art, documentary, photography and design, and has been shown in a diverse range of settings, from theatres, galleries, cinemas and school halls, to office blocks, car parks, swimming baths and a public toilet in Bristol.

Running time: 70 minutes (with no interval)

... a wonderfully quirky consideration of how knowledge is accumulated, how we see the world and how we might change it ...
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

‘... this is a reminder of the best and worst of human behaviour, by turns hilarious and touching.
The Telegraph
