un/becoming: a pygmalion story

May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- $15 – $20

Join us for an evening of works by living female composers exploring the Pygmalion myth.

Once upon a time, Pygmalion, disgusted with the unbecoming women who surrounded him, carved his own perfect embodiment of femininity. That domineering hand continues to sculpt today, using far more insidious tools than a hammer and chisel to create inflexible molds that reduce woman to a singular, acceptable archetype. un/becoming unites the voices of female composers and performers to challenge restrictive definitions of femininity and to liberate Pygmalion’s statue so that she may sculpt her own fate.
