      EVENT DETAILS
      The Helen Project

      The Helen Project zooms in and out of the bedroom and the mind of the most beautiful woman in the world. Creators Megan Cohen and Amy Clare Tasker will test their new Build-Your-Own-Helen Play Kit, constructing two different editions of the modular text to be performed over two weekends at DIVAfest. Images of Helen from Homer and Goethe, from modern poetry, and even ripped from the headlines of our contemporary tabloids turn in a kaleidoscope of original and found text. We glimpse fleeting portraits of this mythic woman as each edition twists the mirrors to reflect a new Helen. Like the text, Helen herself is fragmented. Five women all Helen crowd a bedroom, each making a decision that will change her life. Five Helens look into a mirror, asking, "is this the face that launched a thousand ships?" The Helen Project (second edition) is a one-hour interactive performance installation. Comfortable shoes are recommended; while there are a few seats, most audience members will move with the performers. A coat and bag check is provided.


      Cost: 10.00
