She was a monster. He chopped off her head.
This is how Medusa will be remembered by most. But was she really a monster, or a rape victim? A political activist? A social outcast? Or simply a woman with an uncompromising femininity and a rage against injustice?
Through a series of sensory installations, intimate theatre performances, dance, puppetry and music, this immersive site-sensitive piece explores how the story of Medusa resonates with the lives of women in the 21st century. Using the myth as a starting point, the show interrogates the countless contemporary monsters and what it takes for women to be considered a threat.
