Mission Statement

Cultural Odyssey's mission is to stretch the aesthetic boundaries of art by creating, producing and presenting original performance work that reflects the experiences of contemporary Americans and that is firmly rooted in African American music, dance and theatrical traditions. To implement this, Cultural Odyssey premieres original productions and festivals, and conducts international tours. As well, it operates a series of community-based programs. The Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women serves female inmates and ex-inmates. Emergency Report: Theater for Inner City Youth serves young people in after-school programs in the performing arts. Also, Class Act! From Stage to Campus is a high school arts education program that Cultural Odyssey conducts in collaboration with the University of San Francisco's Upward Bound Performing & Visual Arts project.
