OUR CURRENT PROJECT ...
Directed/Adapted by Perry Fenton
With text from Lesia Ukrainka/Aeschylus
Join Troupe Theatre for our first play of our third season - The Cassandra Project. Utilizing the myth of Cassandra (a princess who, because she denied the god Apollo’s sexual advances, was cursed with the ability to always tell the truth, but no one would believe her,) The Cassandra Project incorporates dance, music, and immersive theater to tap into the cultural zeitgeist of fear, uncertainly, and possession over femme bodies and experiences. What does it mean to take up space? To show rage? To push against the lies that we were told from an early age?
