Allegra Jade Fox as Athena

The Vortex: Odyssey

This here's the main, aboveground, right-there-in-real-life manifestation of the Vortex fundraising show that we've been telling you about. Follow in the footsteps of that Greek hero Odysseus – follow in your actual car, packed with your closest friends, guided by the voice of Athena, through the Manor Road neighborhood – and witness the living tableaux of the ancient Odyssey, now updated to confront societal challenges of our modern times, as live performers take over an array of familiar urban spaces and transform them into theatrical phantasmagoria for your fuck-this-pandemic pleasure. Ah, those seductive Sirens … the Cyclops … the island of Calypso … the aquatic treacheries of Scylla and Charybdis! It's like one of those motorized safaris, right, except the animals are (more or less) people and the reality is mythic? It's like … going to Hades in a Toyota handbasket? Bon voyage, traveler, and watch out for those naiads.
