CIRPA aims to review the ‘masks’ of mythical and historical women in theatre

-our mythology is too confined to describe the expanding societies, so we need new myths; not by eliminating what already exists, but by reviewing mythology and history, including facts, ideas, cultures and people formerly excluded-                                                              

Myth-cycles reflect the gradual diminishment of females, she was omitted, defeated or given a lowly position.

” The planet does not need more successful people.
the planet desperately needs more peacemakers,
healers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds.”
Dalai Lama
