Dionysia 2016 will explore "Speak, Memory . . . Stories of our Odyssey"
April 22, 23, 29, 2016

The Center for Creative Work (CCW) will present its eighth annual Dionysia.  Dionysia 2016 / Speak Memory tells the story of Homer’s Odyssey through the journeys of Houstonians around the world, and all the challenges and rewards that bring them home. Our five day adventure opens April 22, 2016 with a performance at the Eldorado Ballroom. Along the way we will hear from mothers, fathers, students, writers, doctors, and nurses from across Houston. Our final night at The Menil Collection will feature Houston vocalist Misha Penton, and poet, playwright and TSU professor Thomas Meloncon, and renowned classicist and translator of Greek and Latin classics, Stanley Lombardo.
