ULYSSES combines music, comedy and physical theatre, to offer an entertaining outdoor piece that draws on the story of Ulysses’ return from Troy – the Odyssey. Enter a surreal world of gods, witches and monsters, where nothing is as it seems, and everything is working to stop you from getting home.
Having angered the Gods, Ulysses, the architect of the Trojan Horse and the downfall of Troy, is cursed to face a world of challenges, monsters and distractions as he battles to return home. Meanwhile, his wife Penelope battles her own demons of isolation and loneliness, not knowing whether her husband will ever return.
Rabo de Foguete and Still Fluid bring new energy to the tale through an exciting unpredictability. Using intoxicating music, rapturous comedy, and powerful physical theatre, they offer a new allegory for a soldier’s return from war.
“A sublime show, quirky, funny, moving, intensely innovative, interactive and fast paced. A true delight to be part of a transfixed audience. Thank you!
Everything about it was on point. The costumes, props and set were a feast for the eyes, the music such an emotional part of the whole experience” (Terry Molloy)
