SIMAETHA (pronounced sigh-mee-thuh) is an experimental witch cabaret written and performed by Jacob Budenz (a.k.a. Dreambaby), featuring dance and performance by Alexander D'Agostino.

Simaetha, the angry witch in Idyll 2 by the Ancient Greek poet Theocritus, becomes the inspiration for an ageless, genderless creature navigating the seductive and double-edged gifts of demons, family ghosts, lovers, legends, and lonely yearnings of immortality.
