To Make a Gross but Understandable Comparison


"I imagine everyone is more or less familiar with the bizarre characteristics of nervous women ... What is referred to as female nerves is simply hysteria."

-Dr. Charles Richet – physiologist, Nobel Prize winner, and closet novelist – writing in 1880 after observing hysterical patients at the Salpêtrière hospital in Paris.

CAENIS is a physical theater adaptation of one of Ovid's Metamorphoses myths. When the Lapith maiden, Caenis, is confronted by the imperious Neptune, she must demand the agency she deserves. Enveloped by an epic soundscape within the walls of PACE, you will journey with Caenis from prey to protector, from woman to man, and from bystander to culprit.
