Argo

Come along with Jason and the Argonauts as they sail across uncharted seas, fight dragons, and make life-long friends on their quest for the Golden Fleece.

NC State’s University Theatre takes on the ancient tale of Jason and the Argonauts in a uniquely modern way. Featuring the skills of 25 actors and 20 visual artists from NC State’s campus and beyond, this project is a collaboration that underlines one of the main themes of Jason’s story: teamwork.

The actor’s voices were recorded independently over two weeks to create an audio version of the story.  Sound engineer Kevin Wright added music and sound effects to create an immersive audio experience.

This audio content has been combined with a pastiche of student-created visual art curated by UT Staff members Laura Parker and David Jensen. This has resulted in a stunning, crowd-sourced celebration of NC State’s indomitable creative spirit.
