Production Details / Press Releases
Cassandra knows the future but no one believes her. In the first part of Cassandra Has Turned, three female performers predicted a whole array of possible futures, alternative pasts, larger and smaller catastrophes. Now they are setting their prophecies to sound in order to seep into our ears. What is even implausible, a truth or a lie? In a time of alternative facts isn’t every narrative justified as long as the rhetoric and performance fit?
