Cydonia: Marsiah

An abstracted story of four astronauts, and their wish to become more than human.

Made in reaction to upcoming plans to colonize Mars, and inspired by encounters with the ‘Overman’ throughout history. The production playfully embodies posthumanist theories and loosely follows the narrative of the birth of Christ.

Cydonia: Marsiah investigates identity and humanity, in a metaphysical story of home, nurture, fear, and longing.

Cydonia: Marsiah was one of the three productions that toured Iceland the summer of 2013 in Þríleikur (Three-Plays). The tour consisted of three 20 minute experimental theatre performances. The tour was an integral part in shaping our style and testing the boundaries as a young company. The tour was possible due to the generosity of the Rose Bruford Jubilee Fund.
