Small Odysseys is a work of grit and tenderness. It tells stories both intimate and vast.

A collage of images and moving pictures reveal moments of daring and glimpses of journeys from the epic to the everyday.

Small Odysseys plays with proximity and distance, shifts between intimacy and isolation and carries a yearning for home.

This new work by rawcus, a company of performers with and without disabilities, continues their trademark style of stunning visual imagery and magical realism with moments of gentleness, anarchy, humour and heart.

Small Odysseys features live music by Jethro Woodward and vocalist, double bass player Ida Duelund Hansen.
