To bring this powerful, award winning version of the Odyssey to Ithaki and then have a Greek translation gifted to the island forever.
A highly innovative & successful UK theatre company, Theatre Ad Infinitum, created Odyssey in 2009 and has toured it worldwide ever since.
It is a brilliant, powerful piece of work. One man, no props, a few lights, seventy minutes.
Extremely draining for the actor, extremely entertaining for the audience.
BUT, it has never reached its proper place, Ithaki.
For those of us who love Ithaki, it’s history & its heritage, we need to ” bring Odysseus home”.
AND in doing this the theatre company wish to fully return it to the island by workshopping it at a later date, translating it into Greek and giving the play to the island to use freely as its own. Ad Infinitum.
AND after doing all this, we will see if we can get it to Melbourne and do the same there for the benefit of the large Greek community there with Ithacan roots.
