A new immersive dance theatre experience. Aphrodite invites you to attend the wedding celebrations of Orpheus and Eurydice, and see this fabled story of Greek gods and Goddesses come to life before your eyes. Featuring movement-based storytelling and original music, audiences will be fully immersed in the myth of these two young lovers. But, as the night unfolds, Orpheus and Eurydice’s love will be tested, and ultimately they and the audience will face the question: is love enough to hold us together?

There are only 4 premium tickets available per performance (2 bridesmaid tickets & 2 groomsmen tickets). You are welcome to choose either no matter what gender you identify as.
Beloved/Departed is an immersive experience that lasts approximately 2 hours. You must be able to stand and walk for the duration of the performance, including up and down stairs. The wedding will begin promptly at 8pm; late admittance is up to the discretion of our front of house staff. Be advised that haze and laser effects will be used in this experience. Please notify our front of house upon arrival if you think this will be an issue for you. Dressing for the occasion is highly encouraged – think, semi-formal relaxed spring wedding but comfortable footwear is advised. Food and beverage will be served/available at different points throughout the night. If you have serious food allergies or do not wish to consume alcohol, we suggest you politely decline any offers of snacks or drinks. There will also be a free, mandatory coat and bag check at the start of the experience.
Linked Dance Theatre make stories come to life through movement, text, music and everything related to the body. We believe that motions inspire emotions which lead our collaborative creative process, and out of our practice comes staged and immersive works that merge the worlds of theatre and dance by telling stories through movement, and subvert the conventional norms of what theatre or dance should or should not be. We use space to inspire the work and collaborate with our dancers to make each piece a truly unique reflection of the world around us. Find out more at linkeddancetheatre.com.
