Printer's Devil Theater and Theater off Jackson are proud to present Shadow Odyssey, the latest puppet extravaganza from Scot Augustson.
Shadow Odyssey is a bold, hilariously left-handed adaptation of Homer's great epic. In the hands of director Jennifer Jasper, this highly theatrical event will put the audience inside a tent as live silhouettes and shadow puppets tell the story of the hero's long journey home from the war and the people who wait for him.
Picture this: you walk into a dimly lit tent. You sit back in a chair or get comfortable on a pile of pillows. Then, the show begins: on all four walls surrounding you (plus the roof above) live actors in silhouette, shadow puppets and hand drawn projections interact to bring to life Shadow Odyssey. Visually it's a mix of ancient and modern images. Homer's themes resonate through the night: return from war, abandonment, longing for the past, the cruelty that good people are capable of and our tricky relationship with the dead.
