Announcing our next production,
a new work inspired by Medusa's origin story
Before she became the snake-haired monster known for her deadly stare, Medusa was a priestess devoted to Athena. But following an assault by Poseidon, Medusa was punished and transformed by the goddess meant to protect her. Reimagined by an all-female performing ensemble, and scored by composer/musician Walken Schweigert, this new work will explore questions
of power, betrayal, healing, and rage.
