About This Show

Icarus, Ariadne and Phaedra are in hell. Literally. Now they’re uniting to smash the patriarchy and fighting to retell their version of the myths. But how can they give their accounts when history, the justice system, and language itself is not designed for women? Playful, provocative and poetic at times, The Dissent uses prose and physicality, contrasted with clown and parody to explore injustice, the language of the patriarchy, and the role it plays in oppressing women’s agency over their own bodies.
