• The Making of

    Odysseus

    In 2015, a conversation between writer Luka Lesson and composer James Humberstone started to bear fruit, with a residency at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music scheduled for mid-2016.

     

    Since then Odysseus has become a monstrous multi-arts project 6 years in the making, with an Industry Preview in Melbourne in 2018 and a number of significant rewrites and developments.

     

    So far, we do not know when the Odysseus will make his way home to Ithaca - a world premiere awaits somewhere over the horizon.
