THERE AND BACK AGAIN AN ODYSSEY
An exciting new kids show coming, for one day only, in the Summer holidays at the Carnegie Theatre! Especially for those studying, or with an interest around, the Ancient Greeks!
Follow CBeebies Patrick Lynch as he uses a pioneering mix of live cinema and theatre to take you on a thrilling ride across the magical world of ancient Greece. With miniature sets he directs the lights, camera and action in front of your eyes to show the famous battles, floating islands, one-eyed giants and angry Gods that make up Ulysses’ 20 year struggle to get back home.
The use of multiple cameras magnifies in wide screen our table-top puppetry down to the smallest detail, turning a storm-in-a-teacup into an Aegean tempest, laying out the fundamental fable hidden in this classic of world-literature and proving that no matter how far you roam, there’s no place like Homer.
