After the success of What if They Went to Moscow? in 2017, Christiane Jatahy is back with a new work. Loosely based on the Odyssey, Ithaque (Notre Odyssée 1) is the first panel of a diptych the second half of which will be produced at Théâtre National in 2019.

Always ready to involve the public in the conception of the story, the Brazilian artist has created an unexpected device. The stage is divided bi-frontally so the spectators are separated into two groups, on one side Ithaca with Penelope and on the other side Calypso’s home with Ulysses creating two temporalities that overlap and meet. Between the two, a double opaque curtain, an undefined space, possibly a crossing…

Intertwined by images of migrants, of borders, and of the longing for the homecoming, Ithaque offers not only a parallel with the contemporary world, but also a true reflection on travel and exile, and especially a unique theatrical experience.
