Eve (2006)

(a duet from “Original Sin”)

The story of the first man and first woman is one that is easily one of the most familiar stories of the Judeo-Christian faith. There is the woman, the Serpent, and the fruit of the forbidden tree. The Serpent is most often depicted as the eloquent wordsmith, tricking Eve into disobeying God, or convincing her to disobey God. This piece explores the concept that perhaps the Serpent never had to say one word to stoke the already-present fires of Eve’s temptation. Was Eve a hapless victim or a woman who knew exactly what she wanted?
