'Being called a Greek feels like being bound with a dog collar.' In a bunker on a Greek island, a conscript keeps watch. Alone. His mission: to guard the border for 72 hours. Three days later, no one shows up: no replacement, no pick-up, no one. What now? Blending physical theatre, text, original music and film, Hyperion re-visits Hlderlins work written in an age of revolutions. A performance looking for its language as Hyperion looks for a home and questions our sense of belonging. A show about big ideals, failed projects and a clown in a bunker.
