Antú Romero Nunes: ODYSSEE

Eine Irrfahrt nach Homer


HAMBURG // Theatre

Antú Romero Nunes has been a resident director at Thalia for many years and is well known for his humorous and virtuoso performance-driven theatre. For ‘Theater der Welt’ 2017 he is collaborating with actors Thomas Niehaus and Paul Schröder to tell the story of the unreliable narrator Odysseus, the former dock worker in the sailor’s tale. Odysseus desperately wants to get home. He has spent ten years fighting at Troy and now he is homeward-bound. So much has happened in his past and he has so much ahead of him. A drawn-out erotic campaign of pursuit by a nymphomaniac, the encounter with a bi-polar cyclopes, real hearing loss at the hands of sirens and all sorts of slaughter, vengeance and hangovers. His stories are full of splatter film-esque brutality and continually evoke life as a sea voyage, a shipwreck and stark survival. Odysseus wallows in nautical metaphors for existence, but nevertheless (or perhaps because of this) he always prevails. After more than twenty years on his odyssey, he finally sails into his home harbour. But does anyone remember him? And is he still the same man? And what has become of his wife, Penelope and his son, Telemachus?
