White Snake Projects
In this final installment of White Snake Projects’ critically acclaimed Pandemic Trilogy of virtual operas, opera maker Cerise Lim Jacobs teams up with composer and interdisciplinary artist Mary Prescott and director Elena Araoz to explore sexual violence and the “shadow pandemic” of intimate partner violence (IPV) during lockdown. In A Survivor’s Odyssey: The Journey of Penelope and Circe, characters from Homer’s Odyssey live within the ongoing crisis of sexual and intimate partner violence, exacerbated by the pandemic.
