About the Show
Can a language be cursed?
1900. The island of Crete. Archaeologists unearth tablets with mysterious writing. It may hold the secrets of the legendary Labyrinth, the Minotaur, and Ariadne, who helped the hero Thesus kill the beast.
A working-class woman in New York and a rich male architect in London made history solving the mystery. But versions of that history differ. And they both faced tragedy.
It’s a mystery of revealing ancient truths, righting historical wrongs and the subversive fun of ditching the old versions to make history today.
December 3 – Kenny Yun
award-winning director, writer, solo performer
Mythology & Archetypes – who gets to be a hero?
December 10 – Mario Teló
professor of Classics & Comparative Literature at UC Berkeley, and author of Archive Feelings: a Theory of Greek Tragedy
