Ulysses combines the music of Rabo de Foguete with performance, 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. Songs are in English and Portuguese but the show is otherwise not text based.
Ulysses was created with support from Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts and developed in partnership with Mandinga Arts.
The show is still in development, having premiered at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2017 and Head Out Not Home 2017. After another phase of work, to build on feedback from those performances, it will be available for performance from June 2018. Please contact us if you are interested in booking the show.
