DV8 Physical Theatre - Enter Achilles
DV8 Physical Theatre dance company was formed in 1986 by the choreographer, Lloyd Newson. To date, the company has produced 16 highly acclaimed acclaimed dance pieces which have toured internationally, and of these five have been turned into award-winning films for television.
Enter Achilles was adapted for the screen by Lloyd Newson and the film's director, Clara van Gool, as a commission for the BBC and was produced by DV8 Films. After transmission by the BBC, the film went on release around many of the World's film festivals where it picked up a total of 7 major prizes.
The dance piece is a funny, cruel exploration of the male psyche. Enter Achilles is set in a typical British pub, a shabby, nicotine-stained boozer. Pop songs tumble out of the jukebox, there is football on the TV, and the eight men lark around, pint glasses in hand. But their blokish fun is balanced on a knife-edge of tension, for beneath the mateyness lurks a disturbing undercurrent of paranoia and insecurity, where weakness is brutally exploited and violence covers up vulnerability.
