Odd.A.See was performed in the basement of a repurposed hospital space: Arts@Renaissance, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Five playwrights took the audience on an immersive journey, from room to room, through the world of Homer’s Odyssey. It examined what it means to come home and how war affects us all. Eight visual artists crafted installation art pieces/sets. Three bands rotated as the unruly suitors and created original scores. My first immersive project, this was thrilling and daunting. An eerie basement was transformed into the bizarre worlds of Odysseus’ journey.
