In Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, the ancient Baalbek ruins bear witness to a turbulent history. Nearby, the Palmyra Hotel, is a time capsule of a flourishing and cosmopolitan yesteryear.

A chorus of shapeshifting characters evokes the hotel’s bygone era where music, poetry and bohemia intersect with nation changing events.  Mortals and gods wrestle with inexorable time as they plunder the past to make sense of the present.

Clockfire Theatre Company is a physical theatre company which creates original devised works. For Ruins Clockfire harnesses the magic of visual storytelling and embarks on a journey through time contemplating Lebanon as its own tragic hero.

WHAT IS 25A? 25A is a Belvoir initiative to support the artists of the future. It has been made by independent and emerging artists. They have produced and marketed it themselves. They get 100% of the box office and the theatre for free. Their task is to make a show for less than $2500. Thanks for supporting the artists of the future.
