Inspired by the bizarre and gory legends of early virgin martyr saints, Ursula and the 11,000 Virgins combines eleven short solos for women ranging from a young girl to older women in the NYC dance scene. Existent medieval hymns and songs with new original music set the tone for this playfully macabre look at the lives of these mysterious women.

This performance is presented as a part of The New, New Stuff a three week festival of new and emerging artists. Click here for full festival listings.
