This 36-hour, multidisciplinary, site-specific performance took a single New Yorker through a series of experiences designed around her aesthetics, psychology, and personal narratives.  Odyssey Works researchers and actors, with the assistance of her family and friends, appeared in her social scene and established themselves as characters.  Books were written and scores created.   All this, in order to provide the context for a deeply affecting work of art.
