From the sparkling bay of Themyscira, to the jagged teeth of the Caucasus mountains, these lands are home to the Amazons; a society of fierce-hearted warrior women who live freely beyond the grip of the patriarchal Greek world- that is, until now. As the dust settles and the sun sets over the battlefield, the Amazons must regroup if they're to rescue their beloved sister Antiope from her Athenian captors.

The Amazonomachy is a brand-new classical play that explores a vibrant matriarchal society inspired by both ancient myth and real-life warrior women. Written and directed by settler/Métis artist Danielle LaRose, this piece reclaims and reinvents "the classics" to be more accessible, empowering, and inclusive.

After a sold-out reading this summer at pêhonân (Edmonton Fringe Festival's first all-Indigenous venue), The Tiger's Hearts Collective were able to hold a six-day in-person workshop to explore the physical world of these passionate and powerful women. We were thrilled to be able to share that continuing work with audiences over a limited digital run which appeared on FringeTV from February 10th-13th, 2022.

We're proud to have been able to donate all box office proceeds from this digital showing to our friends at WIN House.
