"The idea is a beautiful inefficiency: a tiny but infinitely more affected audience...an Odyssey Works production doesn't scream 'art' so much as whisper it into the subconscious retroactively."
-A Waking Dream Made Just for You
"[Odyssey Works] hopes to create sweeping, awesome experiences for audiences, affecting them in ways that no normal art piece could."
-Designing for Misuse
"People have been changed by the performances. They've quit their jobs. They've ended relationships."
- Studio 360:
A Play Where You’re the Star, But There’s No Script
"Instead of a mediated mass experience measured by critics or box office...why couldn’t art be more like a love poem, built on intimate understanding?"
-Who Staged a Months-Long Performance Piece Just for Rick Moody?
“The border between the quotidian and the performative became inapparent."
-Immaterial: When I Left the House it Was Still Dark
“For Odyssey Works, the city is not just a stage, but is an environment rich with significance, individual to each of us. Each performance mines these personalized landscapes to create a profound, transformative experience.”
