LYNGO THEATRE PRESENTS "THERE AND BACK AGAIN- AN ODYSSEY"
28th October 2017

Lyngo Theatre presents:

THERE AND BACK AGAIN – AN ODYSSEY

A show by Marcello Chiarenza
Adapted and performed by Patrick Lynch
Music by Carlo Cialdo Capelli
Design assistant Elena Marini
Ages 6-11
First written down 3000 years ago the Odyssey is the mother of all stories, the ultimate source of myths and legends full of epic battles, floating islands, one-eyed giants, angry Gods and powerful magic.

Follow Cbeebies Patrick Lynch as he launches Ulysses and his companions on a fantastic 20 year long voyage to get back home. Miniature worlds come to life on our big screen as we create them out of sand, stones, fire and water. The use of multiple cameras magnifies our table-top puppetry down to the smallest detail and turns a storm-in-a-teacup into an Aegean tempest.

We have adapted this epic narration to bring out the fundamental fable that everyone can follow – a thrilling ride across the magical world of ancient Greece to show you that no matter how far you roam, there's no place like Homer.

Comments
‘Loved the use of simple devices to stir the imagination. Patrick Lynch drew you into his world.’
‘Great actor, wonderful storytelling, ingenious props.’
‘I thought the birds were brilliant.’
‘ “exelunt show”, from Abigail, age 7, front row with hie hill shoes...who touched the cows head.’
‘Oscar loved the things you have made, Georgia loved the way it was life-like and mysterious, Pete loved the snow-tree, I loved the music and the beautifully put together whole.’
‘What I liked was the way you adapted parts of the story to fit the props (not the other way round). The gadgets were captivating for the children, and the way the sticks for example represented the big forest. It was stimulating for my little sisters because they had to think about it.’
