Concept and production by Sergio Maifredi

Odyssey – A Mediterranean Tale is about going back to the power of oral storytelling, to a flesh and blood storyteller that brings every page of the Odyssey alive.

It is a production performed in several parts - Odyssey is the first installment fiction. Each short story is absolute and unique. It is the audience that works on the “film editing” each night by using his/her imagination. I asked a different actor to play the storyteller for each of the 24th Homer’s Cantos. I did not choose the most gifted among theatre actors rather those among them that could be called artists and would be able to speak to a large audience pro-viding their own original readings of the poem. The production has been on a tour across Italy and Switzerland, set both in amazing natural landscapes and in Greek and Roman ancient theatres as well as in some of the most impor-tant Italian Theatre Festivals.
