"The Odyssey Reloaded" is a shadow theatre workshop designed for children aged 9 to 13. Children discover how they can transform their own shadow into a means of theatrical expression, while going through events and visuals from Greek literature and playing a series of movement, coordination and attention games. The young actors’ ensemble transposes 10 scenes from The Odyssey into a small theatre show with human shadows. The end of the project consists of a presentation of the experiments made with the children as a theatre play with public, in German, English or both. Each scene has its own live soundtrack and the costumes and masks are constructed by the participants themselves. So far, this ArtCrowd © 2012 concept – the workshop consisting of 25 hours of intensive work – was conducted in German in three schools in Bucharest: at the "Goethe German College", at "Zeppelin Schule", and at "Compania Mică Afterschool". As part of a school project week, "The Odyssey Reloaded" also took place in the bilingual Austrian school "Neue Mittelschule" in Altmünster (in English and German).
