GORGON: A Horror Story

GORGON: A Horror Story

Location: Cavern - The Vaults, Leake Street

“Elf Lyon’s quirky shows are undefinable which is always a good thing. They break the boundaries that put theatre, comedy and performance art in distinct boxes. For this one, she collaborates with performer and sound effect artist David Houston to tell a story of female rage in which the Medusa myth meets the Chainsaw Massacre.”
