This double DVD gives a unique insight into the hilarious inventiveness of internationally acclaimed physical comedy company, Spymonkey.  Produced by Spymonkey and using original rehearsal footage and interviews, the resource follows the creative process from the first moments of inception through rehearsal to performance as the company turns Sophocles' most famous tragedy into a Bowie-esque space ballad.  The DVD also includes a live recording of Oedipussy with commentary, as well as interviews with the artistic directors as they explore the influences on their work and the creative roles of director, writer and designer.

“Many congratulations on a superb job with the DVD package. It’s really nicely put together, a great resource. Watching you discuss your starting points, music and choreography, collaborative work and so on, with the rehearsal footage and key clips from the live production folded in to the discussion, is revelatory. That is really illuminating stuff, because it enables us to see the context, the process and the finished product in a fairly seamless way. It’s absolutely fascinating.”

"I love Spymonkey for the brilliance and precision of their clowning and the ripple of pure intelligence beneath the anarchic surface...Quite rare, quite wonderful, not to be missed.”
