A multimedia dance performance based on Homer's epic poem
The Odyssey integrates choreography by Sonia Plumb, film by Helder Mira, original music by Cory Gabel, masks by David Regan and costumes by Gail Fresia to tell the trials and tribulations of the Greek hero Odysseus.
Love, loyalty and courage are tested as he travels home from the Trojan war, encountering the Sirens, Calypso, Poseidon, Cyclops and the Lotus-Eaters. He must use his wit and brains more than his brawn to save his men and return safely home to Ithaca and his wife, Penelope.
A visual feast for the eyes and ears. Seven dancers play over thirty-five characters including Helios' Cattle, Stick, Dung Pile and the Suitors. Running time approximately 75 minutes.
Performances include Study Guides to bring audiences up to speed on this 3,000 year old adventure and its relevance to current day society and culture and the trials we all face.
