Event description

Description

Let's spit venom at patriarchy.


M E D U S A gives voice to the monster behind the myth.

Cursed with a head of snakes and the ability to transform men into stone, Medusa has isolated herself from humanity. On top of that, soldiers keep trying to kill her (which is super annoying) and now her yard is scattered with statues.

Through a combination of physical performance and live soundscapes, an ensemble of five women paint a powerful picture of timeless injustice. This collaborative work explores Medusa’s regeneration from victim to empowered monster... She’s having a great hair day and she’s ready to spit venom.

Do you dare to meet her gaze?
