“I am determined to be seen.”

Persephone Bound  follows a young woman’s journey through three vivid realms: The Underworld – a college party that holds the painful memory of her experience of sexual assault; The Court – a bureaucratic hell-sphere where she pursues her fight for justice; and The River (Styx) – a liminal internal space where she grapples with grief, the ambiguity of memory, and the trauma of an event that has left an indelible mark on her life.

Persephone Bound, a contemporary adaptation of the Greek Myth of Persephone, is a play that uses stunning poetry, percussion and aerial circus work to tell the story of a young woman’s courage and pain as she navigates the complexities of speaking out about surviving sexual assault.
