Phryne is a work-in-progress exploration of societal cognitive dissonance in regards to sex work through the story of Phryne, a sex worker in Ancient Greece who saved her own life by flashing a jury.
Using a laid-bare storytelling and teaching format including a “classroom” layout, slideshow presentation, and audience participation, Phryne explored a look into art history from a feminist lens and brought audience members into a world much different than today, encouraging them to ask themselves questions about ownership, taboo, discrimination against sex workers, the power of language, and our responsibility in setting stories straight.
