Next month we will be on the road again to bring you Odyssey: a breathtaking adventure through this Greek classic, all performed by just one man - our co-artistic director George!
Odyssey is a devised adaptation performed by George Mann and directed by Nir Paldi.
“We wanted to create a dramatic and poetic piece that really works the imagination of the audience: being a one man show this was a big challenge. The magic, characters, spaces, colours, and whole islands are all created by George and I had to push hard to find the precise world of Homer’s Odyssey.” –Director, Nir Paldi
Odyssey follows the Greek warrior Odysseus in his relentless attempt to get home so he can see his wife and son again before he dies. Up against the God Poseidon and his hurricanes; nymphs that sexually enslave him; countless characters, creatures and ferocious one-eyed monsters; whatever hardship he endures, Odysseus’ tough heart won’t give in. But after twenty year’s away from home will everything be as he left it…?
Passionate, highly physical, and poignant storytelling brings this breathtaking adventure to life. ‘Best of the Fringe’ (Observer) and an Official Fringe Sell-Out Show 2009 this critically acclaimed tour de force has toured extensively in UK theatres and internationally.
