Daughters of Troy returns to Governors Island in

The Persephone Project

[Governors Island, NY] Daughters of Troy will return to Governors Island in
New York through Barton Booth’s MAKE ROOM initiative for the second year in
a row. This year’s residency will exhibit theatrical installations
exploring female sexuality and desire through the lens of the Persephone
myth. Free presentations of these works-in-progress along with an
exhibition of artwork will be open to the public on Saturday, Sept. 2 and
Sunday, Sept. 3 at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm at Building 8A in Nolan Park on
Governors Island.

Last year the company consisted of 11 theatre artists and three visual
artists. This year’s company includes Artistic Director Aubrey Saverino,
Artistic Producer Brooke M. Haney, Lead Writer Rachael Jenison, along with
over a dozen theatre and visual artists, and for the first time an
Apprentice Company, to be announced soon.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be invited back” said Artistic Director,
Aubrey Saverino. She continued, “last year’s residency was not only
artistically fulfilling, but a stepping stone to our off-broadway workshop
at Dixon Place. We are so grateful to Barton Booth for the continued access
to a beautiful, historic space on Governors Island and the opportunity to
create.” “This year, we are excited to explore the house as a theatrical
installation,” added Artistic Producer, Brooke M. Haney. “We expect an even
more intertwined experience for the theatre and visual artists with art
inspiring more art.”

Daughters of Troy will feature free presentations of the theatrical
works-in-progress along with an exhibition of artwork inspired by the
Persephone myth on Saturday, Sept. 2 & Sunday, Sept. 3 at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and
4pm at Building 8A in Nolan Park on Governors Island. The house will be
open from 10am to 6pm for Art lovers.
