This production is in Alexandria, VA.
THE TROJAN WOMEN PROJECT, led by experienced devisor and BST Artistic Associate Rachel Hynes, will explore the timeless story of The Trojan Women to illuminate modern women’s relationships to war, sexuality, politics, slavery, and female-on-female violence. A blurred mash-up of song, movement, feminist text, and poetics, THE TROJAN WOMEN PROJECT will employ a female ensemble from different backgrounds and of different cultures, ages, and races to create a new version of the classic play that speaks to us today. This intersectional look at American women tries to discover why being women isn’t enough to unite us and whether or not we are the losers in the American Dream.
