A reflection on the powerful feminine symbol of Medusa, the myth and its various connotations in our contemporary life.
Created on the coast of Barcelona and inspired by its marine life, Jasmin Vardimon presents her new work Medusa. Celebrating 20 years of her company and the work of one of the world’s leading female choreographers, this piece examines the gendered historical significance of Medusa; the myth, the symbolism and the philosophical idea of ‘reflection’.
Bringing together a remarkable international cast of performers, Vardimon’s epic, new production not only deconstructs the myth but also looks forward, exploring Medusa’s aquatic symbolism in the environmental future of our seas.
