Foster & Déchery’s upcoming production Epic is a brand new devised piece which’ll be travelling around the country during May and June of this year, and stops off at the Midland Arts Centre (mac) on May 7th.
Using just four performers, Lucy Foster and Chloé Déchery conjure the history of the 20th century on stage. On a quest to discover the past and what it means to us now, the team dissects the nostalgia and myths of our cultures and families, combining personal stories with video interviews and vivid ‘visual and physical style’.
