Electra Untitled

Electra Untitled, is a Physical and Visual Theatre adaptation of the myth of Electra as seen in the Greek tragedy Electra by Sophocles. Dance, Puppetry and Visual storytelling, reconstruct her story which she owns and rewrites through the lens of female empowerment. Electra becomes a modern antihero; tangled in violence that runs for generations of patriarchal suppression. The myth is told freed from means of attachment and biases of the past in an attempt to address Electra’s tragedy to its core through the female gaze.

Electra Untitled adds a modern twist to a tragic narrative and brings forward the role of women who provoke change in times of hostility and dissolution. The project aims to raise awareness on the collective trauma of domestic violence and co devise workshops on embodied dramaturgy with communities of women and queer communities across the UK and abroad.
