WHAT IS EPIC FAIL: An actor and a laptop perform a 60-minute adaptation of The Odyssey accompanied by electronic music. Includes original text alongside excerpts from Emily Wilson’s 2017 translation of the Homeric narrative. The performance focuses on feelings of inadequacy and the desire to break free from the hero’s journey.

SYNOPSIS: Elpenor is the least remarkable sea-faring soldier in Odysseus’ crew. Having survived countless horrors, including his metamorphosis into a pig and back again at the hands of Circe the witch, he dies stupidly when he steps off of Circe’s roof while in a drunken stupor. The play takes place on the night leading up to Elpenor’s fall as he talks to himself, drinks alone, and deejays for the animals in the trees around him.
