Childhood friends, a writer and a soldier en route to Afghanistan, reconnect on Skype over a little-known story of Trojan War. One actor is live and the other is a recorded projection on a blank, clay figurine. The audience listens on headphones to an intimate cinema-play, as Little Iliad explores the shared territory of contemporary artists and soldiers and reveals the reasons people go to war.

Evan Webber & Frank Cox-O’Connell
Evan Webber & Frank Cox-O’Connell make theatre in conversation with each other in Toronto Canada. Frank is an actor and director in theatre, and a rock drummer in music. Evan is a writer and performance maker who writes about theatre and visual art. Together they have authored, co-created or facilitated over a dozen performance works in Canada, the US and Europe. Their performance work brings formal rigour to the casual, participatory and spontaneous; it documents their ongoing conversation about how performance changes reality.
