Icarus and his father are trapped in a labyrinth and the audience is right in the middle when they try and find a way out. This new interpretation of the successful German production ‘Um Himmels Willen, Ikarus’ was devised in Alexandria in Decemer 2018 and considers the diverging experiences with this poetical father-son story.
