The Furies of Greek myth were, by all accounts, instruments of justice. And yet they are depicted as monstrous creatures, “foul” and “utterly repulsive.” Is a woman’s anger — even her truly righteous anger — really such a deviation that it turns her into something not quite a woman at all?

"fury" is an exploration of women’s anger — so often dismissed, diminished or demonized — as a righteous tool for healing a broken world. Created in collaboration with Duke students, the piece will weave together ancient myth, recent and current events, and the writings and reflections of the devising company. The result will be a communal theatrical ritual where women’s rage can be honored, reclaimed and reshaped. 

Students of all genders, backgrounds and experience levels are invited to join in exploring this material. Please contact blair.cadden@duke.edu to learn more about ways to get involved.
