Montreal’s Oimoi Productions presents a double-header of Ancient Greek poetry, performed in all-new translations like you’ve never seen before.

Ephemer-illz is a 15-minute improv experiment about love, life, drinking and death, where Carina de Klerk and Lynn Kozak perform and respond to ancient Greek poetry. While drinking beers. “these two actresses...were thoroughly magnetic...the quotes, profound and hilarious...a tasty meal of uncontrived ambiance” –Montreal Rampage “Ephemer-illz will give you tons of food for thought...or is that drink for thought? – Bloodyunderrated

Iliad 21/22 is a one-man show where acclaimed Montreal actor/director/writer Paul Van Dyck performs the climax of the Iliad: Achilles’ battle with the river, and the final showdown between Achilles and the Trojan warrior Hektor. 45 intense minutes filled with battle-fury and death that asks us all to re-think what it means to be alive.
