Bowerbird is pleased to present Variant 6 performing “I Heart Artemis”, a new, evening-length work by Wally Gunn and Maria Zajkowski performed at the Maas Building.
In the time before time, Athena and Artemis meet, fall in love, and live a brief eternity of passion. But their paradise can’t last. On earth, men wage war, indulge their lusts, and exploit the land. Athena and Artemis watch in horror as the world falls apart, and must unite to defend what cannot defend itself. Is time running out? The deities are watching.‘I heart Artemis’ is a story about a mythological love and a very real crisis, which asks the most pressing questions about humanity’s future.
