Medusa and the Oddity

RUNNING TIME
0hr. 45min.
Closed

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Two one-acts employ creative storytelling, music and movement to examine addiction, mental illness and gender power.

Medusa adapts the Greek myth into the present day to examine global violence against women. The Oddity is a journey into the dark world of Western psychiatry and the suffering of the human soul. Both plays exist in a disjointed and unstable present. The reality of the space is dim and unwelcoming. Movement and rhythm play an important role, with drums a motivating factor in Medusa and dance being a major tool of communication in The Oddity.
