Perseus and Medusa

The Nine Extraordinary Granddaughters of Earth and Sea

Perseus and Medusa reimagined

The king must die… but can death be outwitted?
The fallen woman must be punished… but can punishment become power?

A new take on an old tale, with more than a nod to Robert Graves.
As our solar hero soars glittering into the sky, we’ll make a leap into our own shadowy, mythic past, with only the stars to show us the way…

This show explores how myth evolved out of ritual and made story-sense of the culture into which it was born.

Initially developed for the National Gallery in 2012, dormant for a while and now growing to full told-on-the-tongue strength for story-loving adult audiences!

Schools version also available for Y7 and above.
