Surprising, energetic, badass storytelling.
Dash back to the beginning as we retell and unpick myths, epic texts and really good stories from around the globe.
Many of these stories have lost relevance, interest, or have faded away over time. Our world may be different, and maybe now we think we’re too modern, bitter or cynical for these stories. But anyone could be a hero if you tell it right. Even two poets.
Returning to Perth after their sell-out season at The Blue Room Theatre in 2015, your hosts Finn O’Branagáin & Scott Sandwich are part-time performance poets, full-time story enthusiasts, double-time friends.
From the cradle of civilisation to the one about the wooden horse, with heroes ranging from Gilgamesh to Vin Diesel, The Epic lovingly takes the stories you think you know and asks them to tell us another.
