HELEN.

60 min: 1-100F

synopsis:

Rooted in the Helen of Troy myth, this theatrical installation explores the exploitative roles women are coerced into playing. Helen is the “everywoman”. Trapped in echoes of our own double binds, she’s faulted for the world’s catastrophes whether she’s painted as an object of weakness or one of
sexual deviance. Focusing on feminist concerns such as believability, assault, objectification, sexuality, and consumption, the performance invites engagement with
multiple artistic mediums and ultimately seeks to empower and transcend gender dynamics.
