A standing-room-only crowd of almost three hundred in the Cook-DeWitt Auditorium witnessed world-renowned storyteller Odds Bodkin as he wove afresh the oldest story in western literature for GVSU students.
His retelling of the fall of Troy and Odysseus' ill-fated journey home displayed a variety of talents -- extraordinary musicianship, animal mimicry, evocative body language and a lively sense of humor.
In a post-performance question period, the seemingly inexhaustible performer responded students' questions about his career and family life and about his technical skills and their significance in the millennia-old tradition of Homeric story-telling.
The performance was sponsored with the cooperation of the Department of Classics, The Honors College, and the School of Communications Theatre Program.
