Phone Homer - | Thespie

Video and performing artist Michelle Ellsworth unleashes a one woman, multimedia portrayal of Clytemnestra, the woman left behind as her husband Agamemnon serves as leader of the Greeks in Troy. In Phone Homer she uses series of instructional videos, Skype calls with characters from The Iliad, a kinetic alphabet modeled after the Kinect, hamburger sacrifices, and an entire internet constructed specifically for this show to interpret this mythic character. This world premiere is informed by years of Ellsworth’s research, including the creation of a dress that can solve problems, performable websites, and tools for coping with the obsolescence of the Y-chromosome. "artistically wild, scientifically accurate movement/theater..." - The Denver Post
