Ode Sea Us

It is legend that Es Vedrà, home to sirens, was visited by Odysseus (hence the title "Ode Sea Us"). Several Ibiza-based artists have joined forces to explore this story. Their poetic interpretation of the ancient myth unfolds through the use of multiple art-forms: artistic sea-swimming, drone photography, mask-making, costume design, and poetry.
