The Odyssey: A Staged Reading and Discussion
Fishman Space, BAM
Brooklyn, NY
Share this event:




A distant war, a long-awaited return, a journey back, a homecoming, a wife and husband, and revenge: the arc of Homer's Odyssey comes to life in Emily Wilson's translation that is both contemporary and faithful to the musicality and physicality of the ancient Greek epic. Join the Aquila Theatre and Emily Wilson for a staged reading of an abbreviated version of Wilson's translation; and a post-show discussion with the translator, an actor and veteran from Aquila's Warrior Chorus, and a veteran's partner. What does the Odyssey mean today to veterans and their families? What does Wilson's new translation in iambic pentameter bring to the text that others have missed? How does performance help us to experience the Odyssey in new ways?

This event is presented by the Onassis Foundation USA and the Society for Classical Studies.
