Odysseus. Een zwerver komt thuis

Michael De Cock & Patrick Lateur / KVS & NTGent

This is the story of a wanderer who, cast adrift after fighting a war that has lasted too long, is trying to find his way home on a seemingly endless voyage. His journey is hampered by women, islands, the sea, and the interference of a recalcitrant god. However, once he has returned he will still have to fight the ultimate battle to reclaim his position of father, ruler and husband.

Only at KVS: the full marathon which lasts more than 24 hours. This marathon starts Friday at 19:00 and ends Saturday at 21:00.

Patrick Lateur has freshly translated the iambic pentameters into Dutch. We are currently researching if and how we could provide translations into English.
