Nobody chanting. Ulyssic voices To read: the Odyssey! To listen, closely: to all the voices behind. Behind what is written and what has been told. Voices besides. Voices above and below. Listen to them. Who wants to tell his own, her own story, again and again: Penelope, Eurykleia, Kalypso, Telemach, Eumaios. Ships sneak along coasts, one Polyphem is counting sheep, and one Nobody gets away with it. One Phoenician contemplates her revenge and perishes in the attempt, but one child is kidnapped. And what are sirens’ dreams? A cycle of poems, fotovisualisations and scenes based on the Odyssey, currently completed in German.
