About the Show

ODYSSEY is designed to be "one vast experiment" that is "always changing as some parts moved on to become full shows", such as "Rapunzel" or moved on to oblivion such as "Flatland". The show won praise at the Fringe at the Puppeteers of America National in 1995 at Bryn Mawr. "Odyssey" continues to use a variety of puppetry, mask and physical comedy; whirled together to form events from everyday life that take on some highly unusual turns. The show is a series of vignettes 7 to 12 minutes in length with an occasional 20 minute segment when requested by a venue.
