UC Santa Barbara Department of Theater and Dance presents
The Odyssey Project
To have a voice is to have a choice
By Homer and the Cast
Directed by Michael Morgan
Returning for its eighth year, The Odyssey Project partners incarcerated teens at Los Prietos Boys Camp with UC students through a theatrical collaboration. Supported by a team of artists and mentors including a mask maker, a dance choreographer, a graphic design artist, and a mime/movement specialist, together they re-write Homer's epic Odyssey using their own life stories. Everyone in the cast is a hero or heroine on their path to empowerment. Come journey with us!
“The show they captured was varied, upbeat, and revealing. Through a variety of techniques, including recitation from the Odyssey, enactments of its scenes, dance, shared personal stories, raps, and affirmations, the cast created a hybrid virtual world that contained both the grandeur and exoticism of the ancient Mediterranean and the gritty, uncompromising reality of life at risk in contemporary Southern California.” — Santa Barbara Independent
