Joe Goodkin's Odyssey

A performance and discussion based on Homer's Odyssey

Monday, March 14, 7 pm

The Paideia Institute invites you to join us at The Duplex in Manhattan for an evening of live performance and discussion with composer Joe Goodkin. Joe will perform his interpretation of the Odyssey, a 30-minute composition for solo acoustic guitar and voice that deconstructs the story of Homer's Odyssey in 24 short songs. The performance evokes in contemporary musical mode both the abridged plot and the performance context of the ancient epic. Joe's Odyssey includes performance, lecture, and interactive discussion. 


The performance will take place on Monday, March 14th at the Duplex at 61 Christopher Street in Manhattan at 7pm. Tickets are available at a discounted rate of $10 online payable with a credit card.  Tickets purchased at the door are $15. Drinks will be available for purchase at the show.
