In the custard halls of the biscuit factory in Bermondsey, the walls are smeared with history - the history of mass producing biscuits. Shunt have taken the extraordinary liberty to extend this history to ancient Greece.
The Architects is inspired by the labyrinth and the horror it contains.
'I hear their footsteps or their voices in the depths of the galleries of stone and I run with joy in search of them.'
The House of Asterion by Jorge Luis Borges
These are your footsteps - they are your voices - this is a trip of a lifetime.
A wildly disorientating performance chasing the tail of myths, memory and misanthropy; and the vague hope that amongst you there might also be a hero.
