Collapsing Horse bring The Aeneid to life with their own brand of wit, imagination and indelible theatre magic.
This ancient Latin epic tells the story of the people who fled a burning Troy to create the city of Rome. It’s not a bad story...for a piece of propaganda. Within it lies the foundation myth of the Roman people from which they derived their identity, and the Emperor Augustus established his divine authority.
In a time of pageantry and remembrance in Ireland, this legendary tale is a celebration of myths and their complex relationship to the truth.
