Returning for its sixth year, The Odyssey Project partners teens from Los Prietos Boys Camp with UCSB students through a theatrical collaboration. Supported by a network of university and community teaching artists including a mask maker, hip-hop music artist, mime/movement specialist, fight and dance choreographers, together they re-write The Odyssey of Homer using their own life stories. Everyone in the cast is a hero or heroine on their path to empowerment—their personal Ithaca. 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
