An Adventure Beyond Art, Myths, and Everyday Life in Europe 2013 – 2017 Meeting the Odyssey is a social and artistic collaborative project sailing from the Baltic to the Mediterranean Sea. Each summer from 2014 to 2016, artists and organizers from different European countries will travel together, giving workshops and performing theater pieces. The project will combine elements of the Odyssey, contemporary themes relevant to Europe and stories collected through exchanges with the local population. But Meeting the Odyssey is also a journey in itself: bringing people together through long term collaboration, and discovering new artistic landscapes and cultural attitudes to develop synergies at the European level..


Project ambition What is Europe today? Who are the people living in Europe compared to who they were? What is their personal Odyssey? This project asks: what is the common Europe behind the commitment of the European Union? Is there a common ground based on culture and daily life? How can we be reminded of our common roots? The project aims to decrease prejudices and to create a shared narrative that comes out of the stories of the people in Europe today, through the frame of the legend of Odysseus. For a meaningful discussion about a sustainable and inclusive European culture and a creative future, we need to cross national borders to meet people from different contexts with different perspectives on Europe.

Production C: sbarchi_landing / 2015


Theater Productions 2015 Production C: sbarchi_landing It is the other side of nostos, of homesickness; the desire of unveiling which always leads to new encounters, crashes and tragedies. The disembarkation, the landing opens the way to a different look, never sure nor safe, to an unknown dimension. The ship and the crew on stage, the docking among people, in an unknown city; meeting extraordinary men and women, class, genre, age conflicts, threats, ghosts from the past and then on board again, to set sail to new routes: are we sure we wish to get back to Ithaca? Behind this stubborn desire of meeting and the unknown, is the impulse to sacrifice the fellows perhaps hidden? REFLECTION ON LANGUAGES | AUDIENCE INVOLVED | LIVE MUSIC | USE OF THE SHIP
