The Persephone Project: Art Residency on Governors Island, 2017

The Persephone Project is a site-specific theatrical installation created by visual and theatre artists from Daughters of Troy. The project excavates the layers of the Persephone myth to explore duality, desire, and death in the stories we tell and the secrets we keep. The project was selected by Barton Booth for a week long residency on Governors Island. 

Artistic Director Aubrey Saverino & Artistic Producer Brooke M. Haney worked with Art Curator Natalie Burlutskaya from RE:ARTISTE to select fourteen visual artists from all over the world including Iran, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, Macedonia, Greece and China. Their work elucidates some piece of the Persephone myth and includes photography, sculpture, painting, projections, installations, and performance art. We then brought in professional theatre artists, as well as an apprentice company of young women, who devised work inspired by both the artwork and the myth that included dance, music, storytelling, and participatory one-on-one experiences with audience members. 

Presentations of the work-in-progress and an exhibition of artwork inspired by the theme were held on Saturday, Sept 2 & Sunday, Sept 3 in House 8A in Nolan Park on Governors Island. The project is still currently in development.



FEBRUARY 2017: Opening of the Show, "Let Me Go, Father"

Inspired by Akira Kurosawa's movie "Yojimbo". The name of the show is an opening line from this movie revealing a son’s desire to escape his small town’s struggle between two rival gangs. Inspired by the movie, five artists explore the theme of gender, cultural appropriation, politics, and bipartisan government which pressure individuals to maneuver pre-existing systems. 

The interview with the participating artist, Mensur Bojda, is HERE.

What is Video Marketing and Why Do You Need It? Video marketing is, hands down, the most effective way for artists to get the attention they deserve.

Instructor: Catherine Stratton is an award­ winning filmmaker and owner of Stratton Films, a production company specializing in online marketing videos for artists and creative entrepreneurs in order to help them build their businesses and get the attention they deserve.

Interactive Workshop: Aromas as a Pathway to Creativity


 See, smell, touch and taste in this interactive workshop. Experience for yourself the enchantment, inspiration and creativity of essential aromas. Mother Nature is an unrivaled expert when it comes to Creativity. Meet Dr. Paul Goddard, Clinical Psychologist in the creative atmosphere of the Soho Photo Gallery. Immerse yourself in a sensory experience. Come to better understand the power of your amazing sense of smell. Perhaps you remember the aroma of fresh baked bread or chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven. Learn about gifts of the earth that awaken creativity: savor herbal tea, experience essential oils, embrace aromatherapy techniques that many find indispensable to remain grounded and creative amidst the commotion of city life.

Which aromas energize? Increase focus? Ease stress? Arouse creativity? Mother Nature loves Creativity - she inspires us with so many sights, sounds, smells, flavors and sensations. Our ability to breathe and smell is profoundly evocative. Fragrance is a subtle but very powerful pathway to creativity. Even long ago, the geniuses knew about the power of fragrances. Leonardo da Vinci was said to be passionate about essential oils, and was famed for surrounding himself with perfumes. Even Shakespeare's father was a glover who was known to use extensive amounts of essential oils. Could this have been a contributing factor to the creation of 39 plays, 154 sonnets and countless poems?

Dr. Goddard moves beyond theory and invites you to directly experience the power of essential oils to inspire creativity, enhance motivation and ease toxic stress.
