Cassandra In Souliloquy.


Cassandra In Souliloquy from In Souliloquy on Vimeo.

Comfort can be found in nightmares.

Performed by Julia Harari
Written by Tilly Lunken
Directed by Victorine Pontillon
After William Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida.

Cassandra In Souliloquy is part of Cycle 4 of this project


We wanted to play with the idea that Cassandra reaches the point where the only comfort she gets from her 'gift' is the point where she can no longer see the future and she knows she dies. How pushed into a void does someone need to go to reach that desperate point? It's an interesting question. Out of all of the ones we have made so far, this is pretty confessional - so Victorine's idea of the writing works in quite nicely.

I think though, both of us would also love to see it live with Cassandra going full breakdown. She's such an interesting character - how rubbish she get's 5 lines and nothing else in Troilus and Cressida.
