Best of Kickstarter: Odyssey Works “Six Proposals for a More Beautiful World”

odyssey-works1

For the last 15 years, Odyssey Works have specialized in single-audience performances: studying the life of a single individual and then orchestrating the kind of intimate and immersive experiences their audiences-of-one never forget. Many are said to go on to change jobs or commit to loved ones afterward. So who better to write a guide book for creating life-changing moments? Check out the video below for more information on their Kickstarter!

    Very interesting video. I was inspired to do a bit more research with the idea of making a contribution to their Kickstarter project. I went to their website. I went to their Kickstarter page. In all I went to about five different pages. In the 10 minutes I spent I could not find a single description of any one of their performances. Basically after 10 minutes I still have no idea what they really do. Too bad.

      Maybe because all the performances are so personal/intimate they can’t say much about them specifically? Although the New York Times did a pretty nice write up on them a few years ago and gave some examples:

      “In previous projects an audience member was buried in sand, another left overnight in a field of butterflies. In New York a subject awoke to a talk show composed just for him, delivered via a clock radio that had been smuggled into his bedroom.”
