THE WOMEN OF____ (a Song Not Song) Comes to Oscar G. Brockett Theatre


The University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance presents The Women of _______ (a song not song) by I-Chia Chiu, Kt Shorb and the ensemble February 13-17, 2019 at the Oscar G. Brockett Theatre.

The Women of _______ (a song not song) is inspired by Euripides' The Women of Troy, a tragedy in which the Trojan women mourn their fates after their husbands are killed and Troy burns. The play invites the audience to join a group of nameless ghosts on a multilingual journey through poems and tales, to restore dead memories, to trace linguistic and cultural annihilation and to speak for the silenced voices in history. As a partially-devised work collecting the voices of historically marginalized people, the play explores trauma, political wars and our personal battles against ourselves.
