This month, Lazarides Company returns to the Old Vic Tunnels after last year’s Hell’s Half Acre, a trip inside Italian poet Dante Alighieri’s mind, looking at how he imagined the underworld.
Steve Lazarides has asked artists (including Stanley Donwood, Jonathan Yeo and Lucy McLauchlan) to take their inspiration from that mythical Mediterranean maiden-eating maze-dweller, the Minotaur. As the pictures show, the interpretations of the classical creature range far and wide from posters to sculpture.
As well as admiring the artwork, there is a dining option within the exhibition in the form of a Michelin-starred pop-up restaurant. German food firm KP Kofler have put together Pret A Diner, a collaboration with Michelin-starred chefs from London, Germany and Switzerland.
