About this show

Through physical storytelling, moments of story are crystallized as the cast imagines the warrior Odysseus explaining to his son what it means to go to war. The primary focus is on physical manifestations of the actors, who have rigorously trained since last summer to perfect their craft. This visual experience for the audience allows for a deeper connections to the stage, celebrating the imagination of both actors and audience... to complete the story. The style fuses dance, theatre, mime, improvisation, music, drumming, and visual artistic elements. The direction team includes professors Kate Amory and Celena Sky April, with Jesse Mangan '11, who earned a Summer Artistic Development Grant from the Center for Creative and Performing Arts last year to study PUSH Physical Theatre in New York. Says Mangan "it's a post-apocalyptic ancient Greece meets punk rock with a Cirque du Soleil twist."
