Soul of Odyssey

A multi-sensory work based on the Greek classic by Homer, Soul of Odyssey devises and reimagines the hero’s journey and his attempts to rise from the ashes of war, chaos, and battles with deities. It questions and explores how human beings react to forces perceived to be out of  their control. Or as in the proverbial question: “What happens to ants when elephants fight?” This is the second chapter of a four part international project titled The Bird of Fire, and is a collaboration between the KL Shakespeare Players and the Hiroshi Koike Bridge Project of Japan. Santosh Logandran (composer and performer), Nurul Sofia (performer), and Lim Soon Heng (performer, producer and Executive Director, KL Shakespeare Players) join us to discuss what’s in store.
