The Other Path Podcast

Coming October 5th 2022

Take a trip down The Other Path, where witches, shape-shifters, and trickster spirits haunt derelict towns and neighbourhood parks. Classic folk tales meet modern life in a podcast series filled with magic, mystery, and danger.

Our five audio dramas are inspired by fantastical tales from the past, but set in today’s modern world. Follow the risk-takers and the desperate as they tangle with creatures straight out of folklore to pursue their dreams! 

Written by award-winning Canadian writers, each episode comes alive with the voices of professional actors and artfully crafted music and sound. 

Funding for Theatre Creators

Through the Ontario Arts Council’s (OAC) Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators, Odyssey supports Ontario artists to create new work. We make recommendations to the OAC for grants to support writers and collaborative creators working in the field of physical theatre arts.

Applications are due January 6th 2023
