Apollo’s Troupe blends theatre with the ancient Greek rhapsode’s performance of Homer and the modern style of reading by Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe into a new experimental epic form of dramatic storytelling for a contemporary audience.

Synopsis: 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.

Thirty years in the making, set partly on the moon, at the Apollo 11 landing site, the Sea of Tranquility, and around the world, including Don Quixote, Rocinante, Black Elk, Chief Seattle, Du Fu, Merlin, Queen Mab, Jane Austen, Virgil, Robert Hayden, Fairy Queen, Rumi, Tagore, Vyasa, Tolstoy, Blake, Borges, Sogolon, Mbeku, etc.

“A spectacular book. A unique and moving experience.” —Jeff Thomakos, Director

“A masterpiece that will stand the test of time.” —Poetry Cornwall, No. 36, England, UK
