This stunning physical drama grapples with issues that have become all too well known to the American public – war of occupation, PTSD, sexual abuse, and the price of committing combat troops to situations that may have no end. Ellen Mclaughlin's electrifying play intertwines the story of a AJ, a female US Army combatant, with the legend of Ajax, a Greek Hero of the Trojan War who's story is said to be the first documented case of post-traumatic stress disorder. The result is shocking, captivating, strangely humorous, and relentlessly honest.
With Anaïs, A Dance Opera, Cindy Shapiro and Janet Roston delve into Nin's life and writings, addressing the author's complex relationships with her father, her husbands, and her lovers, including her most famous paramour, Henry Miller.

For her the act of self-examination through writing was more intimate than any sex act.The production is presented with one live female vocalist as Eternal Anaïs supported by six dancers who, with projections, tell the absorbing life story of Anaïs Nin. The dancers bring the controversial author to life in a production that shatters stage conventions in the same way Nin herself violated literary and societal expectations.
