Three female composers lend their voice to three mythical women who can now – finally – tell their story.

Annelies van Parys, Aftab Darvishi, and Calliope Tsoupaki have created new and contemporary sounds for three women who have been waiting on the sidelines of major Greek myths for far too long. They shed a new light on the age-old legends, coloring them with nuance and new strength. Is Medea a wrathful monster, or a mother torn by compassion? Is Circe an evil witch, or a profoundly human heroine and what about Penelope’ supposedly powerless pining??
