Drought Jun 20 - Jun 29, 2019  
Studio C Artists Drought
 
In ancient times, in ancient Greece, lived Caenis - daughter of Elatus and Hippea of Thessaly. Caenis was the most beautiful of all the maidens, made more beautiful by equal charm and knowledge. Poseidon, god of the sea, master of waves, keeper of tides, took her. Changed her. Drained her. And grants her one wish... Her wish? --To be transformed into a man, so as never to suffer again. Drought is a modern retelling of this forgotten tale. Using electronic music, digital landscapes and experimental prose we give voice to a voiceless character. A lot of voice, in a dynamic piece of gig-theatre. For how long will these atrocities happen to women in stories? For how long will we listen? Maybe it's time we write our own mythology. It is time to end this Drought. Ages 16+
