When the possibility for connection exists on many platforms, can you find a meaningful one IRL?

Have dating apps hijacked modern relationships as we know it?

achilles premiered at The Place for Resolution Festival in 2018 and returned in May for The Place’s first ever Resolution Replay and has gone on to be programmed by venues that include the V&A, the Wellcome Collection and queer performances spaces like the Royal Vauxhall Tavern and The Chateau.

“Influenced by the likes of Wolfgang Tillmans, these clubby benders capture the nightlife zeitgeist with their multi-media visual theatre dance mash-up.” - Simon Casson, Producer for Duckie.

"Visceral, beautiful, subversive and truthful. Bodies don’t lie, our minds trick us all the time especially when fear of intimacy’s involved. Pierre & Baby’s achilles is a brave, timely and universal piece of work that anyone gay, straight or indifferent can relate to; it works on so many different levels and stays with you." - In-Sook Chappell, Writer & Director
