    Homer's The Odyssey Re-imagined

    broken image

    A multi-arts project utilising classical composition, film, Hip-hop and spoken word poetry, Odysseus takes Homer’s The Odyssey and breaths fresh new meaning into words that were first recited 3,000 years ago.


    Since the inception of Odysseus in 2015, the team at The Future Ancients has worked tirelessly to create what we believe to be a powerful re-imaging of Homer's The Odyssey.


    After two successful work-in-progress showings in 2016 and 2018, the world premiere was scheduled for 2020 - but just like The Odyssey itself, our own journey has been an intense one, with its epic ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns.


    No matter what has befallen us, we continue to forge forward towards our own Ithaki - a world premiere sometime in the future - Somewhere, over the horizon.
