Writer and performer Imogen Stirling and electronic musician Sonia Killmann present The Boulders We Carry: a vivid, intimate and immersive storytelling experience based on the myth of Sisyphus. In this contemporary retelling, we watch Sisyphus roll his boulder through present day Scotland, revealing a world that is increasingly precarious, threatening and hard. Is it any surprise that we’re all struggling?

Looking at themes of anxiety, overwhelm and isolation, The Boulders We Carry celebrates the power of community, friendship and collective resilience.

Themes of mental health, loneliness and anxiety
