A-Musing is an original interdisciplinary work that uses many different cultural representations of the Muse as the starting point for a larger examination of race/ethnicity, economics, exclusion, inclusion, violence, and how the Muse is becoming a resurrected power that is being called upon around the world as a source of inspiration and healing. Stay tuned for a repeat performance of the show in the near future.
