Penelope’s Odyssey: Grades 8-12

Arts Infusion including in-classroom visits, workshops and an offsite performance provide high school students with an inspirational and exciting approach to The rom the women’s point of view.  Greek culture and mythology: The Greeks held and still do hold, deep belief in the value of the humanities, arts and philosophy to transform and inform. The myths are anchors for explaining how and why we humans act and behave the way we do, and how we are supposed to act and behave. The epic nature of “The Odyssey” is very much like the TV episodes of today that provide a through line to deeper understanding. Large-scale projections, fast paced choreography and underwater dance are an enticing introduction to this 3,000 year-old classic myth.
