hear me

Hear Me is about three women who, driven to the forest, find themselves in a Bacchic rite, just as the three of us have found ourselves performing together.  As the women struggle between the need to belong to this communal freedom and the need to appear apart from and above the others, each one relates her dream—how she has tyrannized and been tyrannized.   Their dreams are not theirs only, they are the stories of Icarus, Persephone, and Agave.
