The Return – R&D on a Beach
Alison Neighbour’s company Bread & Goose were sponsored by National Theatre of Wales Waleslab to spend a week on a beach in Glamorgan, creating a work inspired by Homer’s Odyssey. This video, edited by Chiara Ambrosio, documents some of their work:
The company is using landscape and weather to explore Penelope’s experience of waiting for Odysseus. As part of their research, they are currently talking to military spouses and service personnel about their own experiences of being separated from family and loved ones.
Soon, the next phase of The Return project will begin.
