Champs Harmoniques

oXc [Odyssée]
urban and mediterranean opera
  • This is not a representation of the Odyssey but an exploration of language, voices, text, images, myths, poetry, instrumental colours, the sounds of the elements. So no Odysseus or Calypso, no Cyclops or Nausicaa, but a series of singular and unique protagonists who monologue, recite, suggest, comment, rub shoulders, each in a very specific form: song, pencil drawing, shadow, cat burglar, façade choir and crew.
With oXc, Pierre Sauvageot offers us a magical, acoustic and poetic interpretation of this work written more than 2,000 years ago, full of humour and surprisingly up-to-date.
