The Odyssey

THE ODYSSEY: the wanderer’s guide is a devised theater production based on selections from The Odyssey (as translated by Stephen Mitchell) and is a our dynamic exploration of Odysseus’ journey from the perspective of his champion, the goddess Athena, “the wanderer’s guide.”

THE ODYSSEY: the wanderer’s guide uses a core of actors to depict all of the characters as well as the architecture, animals and furniture in the story. Physical depictions of gods and nature personified (including storms at sea, palace architecture, and sheep) are embodied by the performers who play multiple speaking characters and all of the movement roles. The production is supported by considerable sound and through-scoring by our composer, Mark Caspary.
