iLIAD: MARATHON

There are four, separate parts to Iliad that can be viewed individually, or you can choose to see all four in one of two extraordinary, marathon performances - either all day (on Sat 26 Sept) or overnight (on the night of Sat 3 Oct).

During both marathons, between each part there is an interval, allowing for food & drink and comfort breaks to be taken. During the overnight performance (on 3 Oct), there will be food & drink available for purchase at the venue.

There will be seating available throughout the performances, and you are welcome to bring items with you, such as snacks or a blanket for a quick nap between performances. These cannot be left in the space between performances. 

Please see our What to Expect page for more on the experience and travel information. 

Below you will find a full breakdown of times and interval durations for both marathon performances.
