WOMEN ON THE EDGE…Unsung Heroines of the Trojan War is a trilogy of dances inspired by Euripides’ tragic heroines Iphigenia, Helen of Troy, and Cassandra. Pascal Rioult’s interpretations of these timeless stories highlight not only grace, strength, and resilience of women in society but also the futility and immorality of war. The program includes Iphigenia, On Distant Shores, and Cassandra’s Curse set to commissioned music by contemporary American composers Michael Torke, Aaron Kernis, and Richard Danielpour respectively.
