oudeis (1996-1997)

a theaterproject in which odysseus journey connected artists and audience all around the world via the internet.The global theater: a confrontation with a new media on the basis of the first occidental epic.

our team first had the idea to produce a theater performance making use of the possibilities offered by the medium internet in october 1995. our choice of theme is nothing less than the odyssey by homer. via mailinglists and online meeting an international group of artists, theater practicionaris and theoreticans worked on a concept for a theater performance, appropriate to the characteristics of the internet. the playscript was written in a collaboration of our webteam at the oudeis-idea list. the work in progress involved several public performances in real space and on the internet.

among immortals, the first oudeis prototype, was presented on june 1997 at the museum of modern art / palais liechtenstein in vienna, austria. a much improved version of this prototype was produced for the 1997 edition of the ars electronica festival.

in fall 1997, the work in progress was put on hold for the time being.
