With no seating, The Blue Room Theatre is transformed into a pumping, sweaty nightclub for three weeks as the story of Medusa is retold to reflect the modern horror that women face when it comes to gaslighting, sexual harassment, and sexual assault.
This production marks the very first collaboration between beloved indie theatre stalwart Renegade Productions and new feminist collective Bow & Dagger, fusing the outlandish and brilliant minds of writer Finn O’Branagáin and director Joe Lui.
“After the public and private purging that occurred as part of the #metoo movement, I wanted to make something that continues the conversation and carries it towards a place of solidarity and empowerment,” O’Branagáin says.
“I’m sick of feeling unsafe as I walk down the street at night. I want to feel strong and powerful.
I want women of all ages and backgrounds to feel this way. I wanted to make a movement that would support this in a way that is radical and unifying and fun and fierce.”
Featuring a cast of fierce warrior women, MEDUSA is an immersive experience of ritual, togetherness, sacrifice, and empowerment – not a play but a provocation for women to take to the streets and reclaim their spaces.
