An opera in essay form, Penelope Sleeps deconstructs the myth of the Odyssey by reconsidering the long years separating Penelope from the return of Ulysses. Acclaimed Norwegian choreographer Mette Edvardsen working with composer and performer Matteo Fargion, approach opera as a departure point, without incorporating any of its traditional narrative devices and grand gestures. Dangling on a border somewhere between opera and dreams, Penelope Sleeps makes and unmakes the configurations expected between women, others and the world.

This performance has a complete lockout.
