Threnody is an original theatrical performance that hopes to understand, dissect and undercut our society’s relationship to individual grief, collective grief, and the ways in which we can inspire and support one another through hard times.
Threnody was created with support from The University of the Arts/Pig Iron School and was first shared publicly at the Philadelphia Arts Bank in December 2021.
Appropriate for ages 13+
A threnody is a wailing ode, hymn, song or poem of mourning. Please proceed with that in mind.
