About this show

Designed, directed, written and adapted by Ms. Skipitares, The Traveling Players is a circus-like play-within-a-play featuring four female activists in 13-foot tall puppet form (based on four real-life female activists) - 2 from Zimbabwe, 1 from Kenya and 1 from Afghanistan - who, while enacting excerpts from Euripides' Trojan Women, each share a part of their own, often dangerous lives. Each performance will feature original music composed and performed by internationally acclaimed composer Sxip Shirey.
