Aglaonike, the first female astronomer, could predict lunar eclipses, but her science was suspect
because she was a woman. She therefore billed herself as a sorceress and claimed she could draw
down the moon. Inspired by her unsung history, this coming-of-age play follows the protagonist
through a series of challenges, both magical and scientific. Drawing on ancient Greek traditions and
postmodern performance trends,Aglaonike’s Tiger is stylized and visual and uses puppets and masks
to explore political, ecological, and scientific themes.
