How high is too high and how much higher is too high to fall?
Re-focussing the Greek myth through a contemporary lens, Icarus examines how we relate to our ambitions, desires and dreams in a world where bigger is always better and more is always worth the risk. A haunting tale of seeing, soaring and falling, Icarus depicts the dual beauty and vulnerability of our own ambitions and the malevolent potential of our own ego.
