De Machienerie and Theatre La Licorne present the timeless, classical story of Homer’s Odysseus in their own way.
“A father and his daughter watch with interest as a clever man manages to capture an entire nation and then plot a course for home, setting sail across the world’s oceans. They decide to play a game: with each roll of the dice, they will introduce an obstacle to hinder his return home. As a result, he is confronted with a sorceress, a flock of bird-women and a posse of one-eyed giants. In this evocative epic, father and daughter must ask themselves again and again: will the man make it home or not?”
