It’s not all in your head.

 

Fantasy and reality merge in this autobiographical one-woman adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey. Dynamic, dramatic, and darkly comedic, Ithaca explores the journey of Nobody, a feminine aspect of Odysseus, who was born in the Cyclops’ cave. Nobody’s journey is about finding home, but also creating space and a voice for herself within a world and body, which seem to forcefully reject her.

Ithaca premiered at Edinburgh Fringe 2021 as a stage-for-screen production, merging traditional black box theatre with experimental film. The show features physical theatre, devised movement, poetry, and special effects.

 

Please note that the show incorporates strobe lighting. This production contains themes that some may find triggering. Topics Include: Fat Phobia, Bullying, Domestic Harassment, Mental Health, Chronic Illness, and Immigration.

**10% of ticket sales from the Edinburgh Fringe 2021 were donated between Women's Aid (UK) and The Loveland Foundation (USA) to support their phenomenal work.
