“what begins as a difficult, perhaps even daunting task for the audience, gradually becomes compelling, and towards the end even joyful” – The Spy in the Stalls on Sisyphus Distressing

Sisyphus Distressing is a dynamic sonic theatre project, built around the myth of Sisyphus, as it was seen through the eyes of Albert Camus. Composed by Gregory Emfietzis and devised by the Metapraxis Ensemble, it consists of 7 sounding and muted acts, combining video, text, acting/movement and construction/design. This second part of Emfietzis’s work on Sisyphus (watch the 1st part, 'Sisyphus Victimised' performed by the LSO below), explores endless repetition and meaninglessness, struggle and failure, as well as (some sort of controversial) hope for what might come next: the realisation that life is absurd cannot be an end, but only a beginning.
