About the show

A story of humanity coming together in universal peace, Apollo calls all the poets of the nations, ancient and modern, East and West, to assemble on the moon to consult on the meaning of modern life. The Parliament of Poets sends the main character, the Poet of the Moon, on a Journey to the seven continents to learn from all of the spiritual and wisdom traditions of humankind. On Earth and on the moon, the poets teach a new global, universal vision of life. Apollo's Troupe blends the ancient Greek rhapsode's performance of Homer with the modern style of readings by authors like Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe into a new experimental epic form of dramatic storytelling for a contemporary audience, entirely in verse.
