In this action-paced dance performance by the Swedish dance company Norrdans we meet Odysseus on his way home from Troy. He is strongly affected by loss and heartbreak, but also of personal development and triumph.
The story of the most famous hero of Greek myths. ODYSSEUS and his way home, full of struggle, loss, heartache, pain, growth and triumph. There are many steps that a hero has to overcome and battle through in order to achieve his final goal of reaching his home and love. Archetype of a hero describes a person who has managed to fight through his personal limitations. Courage, cleverness, strength or wit mixed with fear, loneliness, doubts, love or tears. A hero is not infallible. He draws his ideas and inspiration from the basic sources of humanity. Of life, which confirms his humanity and denies the divine life. His journey will always head home, where he could find harmony, balance and peace.
Legends and myths are the oldest spiritual treasures of mankind and still speak to man as they did thousands of years ago, their values narrated through symbols are immortal and closely linked with the human being.
