About this event

STYX is an award-winning show about family, myth and memory loss, performed by an international supergroup of musicians, including members of Jebediah, Axe Girl, SUPEREGO, The Tommyhawks and The Love Junkies.

Bringing light to the experience of living and dying with Alzheimer's, STYX tells the true story of a grandmother and grandson, piecing together the memories that connect them across time.

Weaving together riotous songs, intimate storytelling and a journey through the neuroscience of memory, the show reveals the extraordinary power music has to reignite
fading memories.

In 2019 STYX received 8 ★★★★★ reviews, was shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award and FRINGE WORLD Weekly Award winner. "Gorgeously atmospheric, exquisitely lit journey into the past and memory itself" StageDoor, 2019.

Presented by:
Second Body

Second Body is a new company formed to seek out original ways of fusing theatre with live music, storytelling and science, founded in 2019 by theatremaker and songwriter Max Barton and composer and sound artist Jethro Cooke.
