Support the creation and production of this new multi-disciplinary work with live music by Sxip Shirey.

Inspired by Aeschylus’ PROMETHEUS BOUND, Theodora Skipitares returns to the subject of medicine, with a look at stem cell science, genetic engineering, and organ theft. With a dazzling array of puppet styles and a bold use of scale, PROMETHEUS features live music composed by Sxip Shirey, multi-dimensional acrobatics by Jonathan Nosan in the title role, and video. PROMETHEUS asks the question: Whose body is it anyway?


The New York TImes says,"Theodora Skipitares uses an ancient Greek play to look at biotechnology in a beguiling drama that uses puppets and music to make its troubling points."

We are raising funds to pay performers and document the show with still photos and video.
