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
Medusa also represents an opportunity to proactively incorporate aspects of accessibility that can often go overlooked in more institutionalized arts organizations
A truly accessible production and an empowering contemporary perspective on the classic Greek myth
