Once upon a time, Pygmalion, disgusted with the unbecoming women who surrounded him, carved his own perfect embodiment of femininity. That domineering hand continues to sculpt today, using far more insidious tools than a hammer and chisel to create inflexible molds that reduce “woman” to a singular, acceptable archetype. un/becoming unites the voices of female composers and performers to challenge restrictive definitions of femininity and to liberate Pygmalion’s statue so that she may sculpt her own fate.
