A twisted, memoiristic fairytale, blending theatrical storytelling with animated and live (onstage) drawing. A contemporary tale is interwoven with the gruesome Greek myth of Philomela, about women who have been silenced, but who find resistance through the creative act. Theatre and visual art combine to explore duality, identity, and other ways of saying things that cannot be said.


Notes: Contains distressing themes, strong language/swearing
