It's not all in your head. Fantasy and reality merge in this autobiographical one-woman adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey. Dynamic, dramatic, and at times darkly comedic, Ithaca explores the journey of Nobody, a feminine aspect of Odysseus, who was born in the Cyclops’ cave. Nobody’s journey is about finding home, but also creating space and a voice for herself within a world and body, which seem to forcefully reject her.
Ithaca is a stage-for-screen production where black box theatre meets experimental film. The show examines crucial social issues such as Fat Phobia, Bullying, Domestic Harassment, Mental Health, Chronic Illness, and Immigration through the lens of an unconventional heroine. The show features physical theatre, devised movement, poetry, and some special effects.
