Director Rhodessa Jones and the women she works with explore how an arts-based approach can help reduce the numbers of women returning to jail and can aid women living with diagnoses of HIV/AIDS. This show takes its inspiration from stories from Greco-Roman mythology (e.g., Pandora, Medea, Daphne) and features short performative vignettes that weave the performers' own experiences -- of incarceration, of HIV/AIDS diagnosis and of addiction -- together with the challenges faced by the figures from those ancient stories.
