For digital-age audiences, Odds Bodkin’s university performances tend to shock them, not with politics, but with a revelatory artistic experience that leaves them in possession of their native imaginations, many for the very first time.

A student’s letter to faculty following a college performance of The Odyssey: Belly of the Beast in 2017:

“I also wanted to talk about how fantastic the Odds Bodkin performance was! I didn’t know what to expect and I was completely blown away by the whole thing. With all of the sounds he was able to make, the unique voices of each person, and intricate guitar playing…it was unbelievable. The way he created such a vivid scene made imagining a transcendent and effortless gift. While I don’t think I blinked for five minutes straight because I was in complete awe of his talent and skill, other times I would close my eyes for a brief moment to fully picture it.”
