Devised from the writings of Sylvia Plath and performed by a dynamic all-female cast, Out of the Ash is an immerisve, multi-media theater experience that welcomes you into The House of Esther, where 5 women are dually dipped in ancient mythology and modern-day domesticity. The audience is invited to follow the women of the house through different rooms, witnessing their lives (present & past) along the way, interlaced throughout with a cocktail hour, horderves and a celebratory dinner party.
The piece explores themes of gender norms, personal identity in society, death, mythologizing oneself and immortality. It’s a celebration and tribute to Plath’s beautiful, evocative words.

Woolgatherers is inspired by Patti Smith’s artistry and performed as a multi-media re-imagined concert. Traveling through various realms of time, the woolgatherers seek to understand the root of their existence and resolve the oppression of their cyclical reality. This fantasy performance piece unveils complex layers of identity, gender, displacement and loss, and belongs to a trilogy devised by Asylos.
Performed by Teresa Braun, G.J. Dowding, Virginia Rupert and Yael Shavitt
