Her Mind's I

Her Mind’s I is a lyrical performance inspired byte myth of Pandora, the first mortal woman, as described in Hesiod’s Works and Days. Pandora was created and sent by the gods to avenge the grave betrayal of Prometheus who brought fire as a medium of technology and advancement to humanity. Eventually, curiosity (or eagerness) led her to open a jar of evils, a ‘gift’ from Zeus, which consequently reshaped the world as we know it. Pandora has arguably received the blame in the public consensus ever since. Retelling the story through Pandora’s own memories and inner thoughts, Her Mind’s I transposes the audience beyond the ancient narrative, deep into Pandora’s mind. It is a world different from our common experiences, a diffused, multifaceted environment expressed via choreography, sound, visuals, and atmospherics.
