About the Event
THREE LIVE PERFORMANCES
September 24, 26, 28
In this final installment of White Snake Projects’ critically acclaimed Pandemic Trilogy of virtual operas, opera maker Cerise Lim Jacobs teams up with composer and interdisciplinary artist Mary Prescott and director Elena Araoz to explore sexual violence and the “shadow pandemic” of intimate partner violence (IPV) during lockdown. In A Survivor’s Odyssey: The Journey of Penelope and Circe, characters from Homer’s Odyssey live within the ongoing crisis of IPV, exacerbated by the pandemic.
The singers will perform remotely in real-time, using the cutting-edge audio and visual technological innovations that have become White Snake’s hallmark. Visit whitesnakeprojects.org for more info.
