Presented by COFA: Department of Theater and Dance
The Women of _______ (a song not song), written by I-Chia Chiu, co-created by the ensemble, and directed by kt shorb, is inspired by Euripides’ The Women of Troy, a tragedy in which the Trojan women mourn their fates after their husbands are killed and Troy burns. The play invites the audience to join a group of nameless ghosts on a multilingual journey through poems and tales, to restore dead memories, to trace linguistic and cultural annihilation and to speak for the silenced voices in history. As a partially-devised work collecting the voices of historically marginalized people, the play explores trauma, political wars and our personal battles against ourselves.
