The Paper OdysseyHomer's classic is vividly brought to life by The Paper Cinema with beautiful illustrations, live animation and masterful puppetry in "a delicately executed piece which is bound to delight" (The Telegraph). Follow the trials and tribulations of Odysseus during his seemingly interminable journey back to Ithaca following the Fall of Troy, through high seas and supernatural obstacles. Featuring the Cyclops, the Sirens and the slaying of the suitors, this is a truly original portrayal of these timeless gods, men and monsters, set against a wonderful live score.
