A physical exploration of the Medusa myth in time immemorial.

In ancient Libyan, Mesopotamian and Indus religions, Medusa was a deity of creation, destruction, death and rebirth. The Greeks and Romans co-opted her, altering the story to fit a patriarchal narrative. Freud claimed the myth was a psycho-sexual allegory; a fear of castration and the violent femme. Radical feminists of the 80s and 90s, used the Medusa myth to explore the notion of the cis-male gaze. Throughout millennia, Medusa remains a powerful character, reverberating in our collective consciousness. This performance ventures to endow Medusa with new meaning; to reclaim her goddesshood. Shedding the burden of her victimization while honoring the pain. She is both young and old, bestial and human, beautiful and ugly, mortal and immortal. She is a fusion of genders, ferocious and erotic; she is primordial night.
