HELMET GOLIATH exists where right and wrong reside within a spectrum with no definitive edges. Two women fuse, destroy, and rebuild classical lines with an experimental and contemporary approach. The duet canvasses an exploration of temptation versus conscience into an uninhibited theatrical experience.

"The strength of this work was the care that these two artists put into the detail of the entire production...intriguing."
