Birmingham’s Kindle Theatre plunder the city’s native sound of Heavy Metal to create a ballsy gig for you to come and get sweaty to.
The Furies smashes together rock, metal and soul songs with text and poetry to drastically retell the story of Clytemnestra – a woman betrayed. Told through the eyes of Clytemnestra’s band of Furies; hot, sensual, with a glint in their eye, this is the ultimate tale of rage, revenge and envy.
Three very different women vie for the audience’s attention, their disconcerting voices rise and fall as bass pumps through the speakers. The furies reinvent the ancient story of Clytemnestra – her loss, betrayal and ultimate bloody revenge – through original music, vocalscapes and imagery. This show hits you in the gut with beautiful, violent sound, snake-like, pounding images, and bittersweet tunes you won’t easily forget. “the crowd heaves and holds its breath as The Furies circle…”
