With an absurd inventiveness Phil Hayes, María Jerez, and Thomas Kasebacher investigate what an event or occurrence needs to achieve cult status or immediately assume mythological proportions. How does a trivial incident become a key moment in time? And how do stories achieve a legendary dimension? How much deconstruction and destruction is needed to discover this? The only way of unveiling this secret is, paradoxically, by turning back time and ascribing historical importance to every moment from the present. With its discreet irony, tragic estrangement, and excellent timing, Legends and Rumours is a phenomenal and inconceivably witty theatre performance.
