I’d be surprised if I saw a more entertaining piece of dance theatre this year. Kill for a ticket. The Observer on Dracula

the Oddysey

Now On Tour

Homer’s epic poem is retold in an extraordinary dance theatre production.

The King, Odysseus, separated from his family for ten years of brutal war, faces another ten year struggle to return home as the Gods drag him on an epic journey across oceans to strange lands and the darkness beyond. Immortal beauties, shape shifters and monsters both guide and torment the king as he hurtles towards a savage and desperate reunion with his Queen.

The multi award winning company that brought you Dracula present a vision of a broken world, from faded New York pageants to islands of fantasy; brutal seas, battlefields and a gateway to Hades. Set to music ranging from Mozart to Mark Lanegan; Sacred Arias to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and an originally composed score; this Odyssey is of now - contemporary horror and fantasy splintering from ancient myth; the themes universal: how we face our mortality and the driving force of the Gods inside us.
