The Odyssey

The Odyssey

The Odyssey – one of the greatest stories of all time coming soon to the fabulous De Ceuvel in Nord. The Trojan war has finally come to an end. Odysseus, the warrior king is heading home, but gets lost at sea. He goes from island to island, meeting a series of women who hold his fate in their hands. A story for the ages. This July at De Ceuvel, you can enjoy this all-female, site-specific storytelling show. Follow in Odysseus’ wake as you travel the winding walkway that leads through the atmospheric former shipyard of de Ceuvel. At each bend in the path you will encounter a storyteller who recounts her part of Homer’s classic tale. For The Odyssey times and tickets, see here.
