Welcome

The company would like to extend a warm welcome to our new interim executive producer Eva Pepper who joins us from DV8.



Austrian-born, Eva has lived in the UK for more than 20 years. She currently works as a freelance producer, adviser and translator.

During Eva’s ten years as DV8 Physical Theatre’s executive producer she organised extensive tours to dance and theatre venues around the world, raised substantial co-production support and secured two rounds of Arts Council National Portfolio funding. She established the organisation’s first membership scheme and expanded DV8’s educational and digital programmes. Eva is a trustee of Norfolk and Norwich Festival and Cambridge Youth Opera.

We would like to express a huge thank you to our outgoing executive producer Nick Sweeting who is moving on to new projects.

Reviews for The Odyssey

★★★★ “there are sequences of astonishing power and invention… rock’n’roll theatre ballet of a very high calibre"
The Stage

★★★★ “Surreal epic with a Tarantino twist… the Quentin Tarantino of contemporary dance… worth making that epic journey home.”
Evening Standard

★★★★ “a bold project, crammed with incident and detail, and highly atmospheric… an engrossing and overwhelming evening in the theatre. Compelling performances from the leading players and images of stormy seas and shipwreck will linger in the memory ...the crumbling intimacy of Wilton’s Music Hall adds a special magic.”
Dance Tabs

★★★★★ “a phenomenal display of dance… The dance is faultless and relentlessly entertaining… top-notch artistry and, truthfully, it does justice to the word ‘epic’ ”
everything-theatre.co.uk

★★★★ “Here is one new dance show London really can’t afford to miss…. we recommend you book right away.”
Culture Whisper

★★★★ “..a powerful dance theatre retelling of Homer's epic. The choreography is spot-on, precise and emotional...the sheer emotional energy of the dance make this Odyssey truly epic.”
Londonist



★★★ “Blood and terror saturate Mark Bruce’s vivid Odyssey… one of the most consistently thought-provoking choreographers working in Britain today”
The Observer

★★★★ “Mark Bruce’s vision of this cultural foundation stone is dark, violent and sexy.”
Stage Talk

★★★ “Bruce’s complex and clever interpretation of this ancient epic poem is a significant achievement.”
