Myth Independent by Constellations Theatre Company
The stories of the women of Metamorphoses echo through the ages; in Myth Independent, they reverberate off of 5 millennial women, looking back to find the path forward. Constellations Theatre Company attempts to answer the big questions that Ovid never did in Metamorphoses.
Was Orpheus the original pseudo-sensitive soft boy? Diana a queer icon? Juno just a hard done by homemaker?
A series of vignettes make up a wry, satirical and 'surprisingly educational' feminist re-imagining of a classic. The show has a DIY aesthetic: five women, their instruments, a voice recorder and some fairy lights are enough to let these characters speak - or indeed not speak - for themselves. Through songs, stories and silence, Myth Independent gives Ovid's women autonomy.
