Event Details

Anon(ymous) is a reimagining of Homer’s Odyssey that tells a story of immigration, identity, and searching for “home”. Set in America, Anon(ymous) takes the Odyssey’s Greek gods and monsters and reinvents them as people, both good and evil, just like us.

The premiere will feature a pre-show address by Evangelina Alvarez, the Public Policy Coordinator at the Michigan Immigrant Rights Center. Eva’s pre-recorded address will discuss the experiences of immigrants in Michigan, including resources that they have been denied throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. The premiere will also include a live post-show talkback featuring Rep. Shri Thanedar, Michigan’s 3rd district representative. Rep. Thanedar will talk about his personal experience as an immigrant to the United States and discuss how the issues in Anon(ymous) translate to real experiences of Michigan immigrants.

This show explores some challenging and dark subjects, so its content is best for audiences aged 13+.
