The Aeneid

Collapsing Horse bring The Aeneid to life with their own brand of wit, imagination and indelible theatre magic.

This ancient Latin epic tells the story of the people who fled a burning Troy to create the city of Rome. It’s not a bad story...for a piece of propaganda. Within it lies the foundation myth of the Roman people from which they derived their identity, and the Emperor Augustus established his divine authority.

In a time of pageantry and remembrance in Ireland, this legendary tale is a celebration of myths and their complex relationship to the truth.

“Their clear love for their craft is a thrill to watch.” The Stage

“One of the most exciting collectives on the Irish theatre scene.” Totally Dublin
