A Bondi Festival 2024 event. 

A story about the son of the God of the Sun, HELIOS transplants the Ancient Greek tale into a modern-day myth, wound round the winding roads of rural England and into the everyday living of a towering city. A story about life, and about the invisible monuments we build to it.

Winner of the Best Theatre (Weekly) Award at Adelaide Fringe 2024 and Summerhall Lustrum Award at Edinburgh Fringe 2023, HELIOS will be performed by Jamie MacDowell.
