Medusa

Medusa

The Cockpit · 02 MAR - 06 MAR

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

Overview

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.

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.

Fusion Theatre Company believe that theatre brings people together. That is why we are dedicated to creating professional fully Accessible theatre that explores different cultural ideas, traditional stories, heritage and global issues in order to educate, entertain and enhance our understanding of the world we live in.

The Global Hive Laboratories collective integrates access design into the devising process from Day One. This includes thinking intentionally about how what we share can be experienced by different kinds people, and how to develop Accessible content that is present in every performance of a piece, rather than specifically assigned dates for those who would seek out those services.

All performances will offer:
• Open Captioning
• Audio Description
• Touch Tour
• BSL Interpreter
