COLLABORATE – INSPIRE – CONNECT

Inspired by Cassandra, the Greek prophet damned never to be believed because she refused Apollo’s sexual advances, this is a piece about sexual violence. The project addresses universal themes and invites the audience to witness a ritual of forgiveness. Our belief is that in uniting without blame men and women can move forward together into a safer, more tender world.
