Don't close your eyes - you might miss it!

Presented by The Cockpit
Medusa. For generations, she has been depicted as a god, a mortal, an erotic power capable of unravelling men, a fearsome image to ward off evil, and a dangerous monster to be destroyed.
With feminist ideals at the forefront of our culture, she is again a power player, arresting us in her gaze.
Don't close your eyes - you don't want to miss it.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 'It’s an arresting vision, and one that makes Medusa’s final decision – to accept her fate at Perseus’ hand – to feel as if it is made with absolute agency. As feminist retellings go, that’s a successful achievement.' The Reviews Hub
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 'A truly accessible production and an empowering contemporary perspective on the classic Greek myth.' Theatre T
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 'Medusa also represents an opportunity to proactively incorporate aspects of accessibility that can often go overlooked in more institutionalized arts organizations.'
Medusa is a multidisciplinary performance devised by an international ensemble of artists over one year, in four countries. Medusa celebrates the intersectional feminist revitalisation of western mythology, the integration of accessibility design into the generative process, and the way social location affects participation in and interpretation of artistic experiences.
Featuring live music, dance, spoken word, multimedia and visual art, audiences will encounter Medusa’s journey, physical transformation, and isolation through all 5 senses.
