May 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Saturday, repeating until May 19, 2018
This ritual performance features a unique soundscape – including live instrumentation, classical text derived from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, and physical theatre and dance generated by the all-female ensemble. Our very own ruin from an imagined San Francisco of antiquity, The Palace of Fine Arts – with its famous weeping maidens, sweeping pergolas and unique avian life – will serve as inspiration. Turning up the volume on women’s stories, we reach a hand back through time to empower those with lesser-known histories. Through Roman Women we explore the public and private lives of the women in Julius Caesar, in the late Roman Republic, and in the 21st century – imagining and recreating secret rites and hidden mysteries.
