Dance piece, Medusa, heads to Theatre Royal Winchester

Jasmin Vardimon Medusa sm 1

Rehearsals showing Medusa by Jasmin Vardimon Company @ IAB, Sitges, Barcelona

Enthusiasts of contemporary dance will enjoy Jasmin Vardimon’s theatrical masterpiece Medusa, which heads to Theatre Royal Winchester on Wednesday 13 March.

Brought to the stage by one of the world’s leading female choreographers, Jasmin Vardimon presents her new work, which reflects on the powerful feminine symbol of Medusa, the myth and its various connotations in our contemporary life.

This epic production examines the gendered historical significance of the Greek myth, the symbolism and the philosophical idea of ‘reflection’. Created on the coast of Barcelona and inspired by its marine life, the show not only deconstructs the myth but also explores Medusa’s aquatic symbolism in the environmental future of our seas.

Celebrating 20 years of her company, Vardimon brings together a remarkable international cast with the artistic team behind her previous creations for the piece.

After the performance audience members will be able to share in a post-show chat with the performers.

Medusa will be at Theatre Royal Winchester on Wednesday 13 March. To find out more, or to book, visit www.theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01962 840 440.
