Odyssey – theatre adventure starting in Deptford by Teatro Vivo
The Odyssey | Thursday – Saturday until 23rd June 2012 | 7.30pm | Location: Starts at The Albany, Deptford and then on to many secret locations | £12/7 | BUY TICKETS HERE
A bizarre promenade performance that takes the audience on a man hunt down seemingly normal high streets and into the heart of this classic story. Directed by Sophie Austin this promises to electrify the streets of Deptford and is a coup de theatre for The Albany.
THE ODYSSEY BEGINS…
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 monsters, death and desire when an everyday high street becomes the back drop to some bizarre and brilliant stories.
Expect a journey into the unknown, dress for the weather and let the adventure begin…
Teatro Vivo specialise in collaborating with public spaces to tell classic stories to new audiences, and in the Olympic year we’ve been inspired to explore this epic tale.
