Aquila Theatre: The Odyssey

One of the most famous tales in world literature, The Odyssey presents a powerful portrait of Odysseus and his epic struggle to return home — a journey fraught with obstacles, dangers and temptations. A testament to perseverance and the human spirit, The Odyssey was originally performed by highly-skilled thespians across the ancient Mediterranean world. Now, Aquila Theatre presents a stirring new adaptation of this timeless drama. Aquila’s acclaimed adaptation of The Iliad was hailed by The New York Times as “thrillingly embodied.” In The Odyssey, Aquila once again employs its signature style of inventive storytell­ing and innovative ensemble movement to bring another of Homer’s epic poems to life.

Aquila Theatre: 1984

As the modern world grapples with the threats and benefits of technological integration and advancement, Aquila Theatre’s evocative adaptation of 1984, cuts deep into the conversation of personal freedom pitted against political repression. One could easily say that Orwell’s prescient story resonates today even more than it did in 1949 when it was first published. 1984 is a classic cautionary tale by one of history’s most challeng­ing authors, and provides the kind of evocative themes that suit Aquila’s bold, ensemble-driven, physical style. The New Yorker said, “Aquila’s productions are beautifully spoken, dra­matically revealing, and crystalline in effect.
