AGLAONIKE’S TIGER by Claudia Barnett


Aglaonike, the first female astronomer, could predict lunar eclipses, but her science was suspect because she was a woman. She therefore billed herself as a sorceress and claimed she could draw down the moon. Inspired by her unsung history, this coming-of-age play follows the protagonist through a series of challenges, both magical and scientific. Drawing on ancient Greek traditions and postmodern performance trends,Aglaonike’s Tiger is stylized and visual and uses puppets and masks to explore political, ecological, and scientific themes.
