Cassandra was a prophetess in Greek myth doomed to see the future but never be believed. Part concept album, part fever dream, CASSANDRA is a live art theatre work that constructs, deconstructs and reconstructs our imagined collective futures and their limits. Smashing together oracles at punk gigs, dystopian fantasy and utopian dreams, live music and bleeding organs, CASSANDRA is a full noise theatrical attempt to build a new future by ripping apart the past.
