The Ithaca Axis interactive theatre comes to Bristol
Audiences will be led to secret locations in the centre of Bristol as they watch The Ithaca Axis, a modern day interpretation of the infamous Greek myth Homer’s Odyssey being hosted by the Trinity Centre from 23 April until 05 May. The production brings to a close the centre’s Arts Council funded community project: Bridges.
The Ithaca Axis aims to be a distinctive piece of theatre, combining performance and adventure to transform the way the average perception of being an audience member is understood. As part of the play the actors will lead their audience to several diverse, live locations that will be animated by groups of performers.
By taking the audience on a journey that is both emotional and physical, Director Nick Young and Producer Netty Miles hope that the Ithaca Axis will stand aside from other theatrical productions and that it will generate interest from people of any age, gender or walk of life.
“This is the culmination of a lot of hard work with some of Bristol’s finest creative minds and a fantastic experience that has challenged the team to explore new avenues for their work. Using Bristol’s history entwined with current events as the backdrop for our story, this is a show that is unique to Bristol and its story.”
“This is an exciting project for Trinity and taking inspiration from the Greek myths and bringing it slap bang into the current Bristolian locale and culture, the Ithaca Axis creates a potent hybrid of professional and community drama. Creating a multi location event delivered via four simultaneous stories is achieved by engaging the best of our inimitable Bristol talent.”
