Homer’s epic retold in an extraordinary dance theatre production at Wiltons

The Mark Bruce Company’s Dracula was perfect in the setting of  Wilton’s and now they are bringing another unique dance experience to the venue, Homer’s epic, The Odyssey.

From WiltonsThe King, Odysseus separated from his family for ten years of brutal war, faces another ten year struggle to return home, as a reckless God drags him on an epic journey across oceans to strange lands and the darkness beyond. Immortal beauties, shape shifters, monsters and sorcerers both guide and torment the king as he hurtles towards a savage and desperate reunion with his Queen.The cast and creative team that brought you the multi-award winning Dracula present a vision of a broken world, from faded New York pageants to islands of fantasy; brutal seas, battlefields and a gateway to Hades. Set to music spanning Mozart to Mark Lanegan, Sacred Arias to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and an originally composed score, this Odyssey is of now – contemporary horror and fantasy splintering from ancient myth. The themes universal: how we face our mortality and the driving force of the Gods inside us.”
