The Odyssey

A site-specific production written in collaboration with Vic Bryson and Michael Wagg for Teatro Vivo
  • 2012
  • The Albany Theatre & streets of Deptford (London)

This is an urban promenade performance that takes the audience on a man hunt down seemingly normal high streets and into the heart of this classic story.

Help Telemachus find news of his father and participate in an epic adventure. Telemachus has invited you to join him at his father’s house. Only his war hero father is not there—he’s been missing for the last ten years. Desperate to discover the truth, Telemachus asks you, the audience, to go on your own Odyssey and bring back news of wily Odysseus. On your journey you may come across gods and goddesses, nymphs and monster, death and desire when an everyday high street becomes the back drop to some bizarre and brilliant stories.

Directed by Sophie Austin
