Review On Argonautika

Non-Registered Critics

"Argonautika" navigates Jason and the Argonauts to the golden fleece through a choreographed duet with the set. Leaping from world to world, they sail on their stage-turned-ship. There is power in each row, propelling them forward into the next step of this dance. Rodriguez-Elliott takes Mary Zimmerman's words and tells a story in a daringly virtuosic way that brings eyes to the edge of the boat and across the sea as character jump and fight in sync with the altering set. It is a storybook on feet with no reading required.
