The performance drew material directly from the workshop of the Fourth Summer Academy of the National Theatre and at the same time was the application and continuation of the operating mechanisms developed in the performances with the general title: ODC… after Homer. Main axis is the pursuit of a new narrative/storytelling operation through the Homeric”Odyssey”. During the workshop has been developed the narrative/storytelling operation in pre-theatre texts interpreted by musicians in parallel route with the actors.
