Mythology, pop culture, and gender reexamination feed into this unique theatrical mash-up, mixing traditional performance with cutting-edge technology and neuroscience.
An all-female acting ensemble of opera singers and jazz vocalists join forces with musical virtuosos—live augmented cello, piano, theremin and more—on stage for a deep-dive into a haunting mind game, as the audience turns into the actual chorus of the play, rediscovering the community at the heart of a performance.
