The performance was awarded the Prize of Dance from the Union of Critics for Theatre and Dance in November 2016
Medusa is austere and enrapturing. A ludicrous and, at the same time, tragic face. She is an enchanting mermaid but also a terrorizing beast, a lullaby and a nightmare, silence and scream. She gets punished and punishes, undergoing from a position of submission and exclusion to a position of authority and wild power.
She will be called Medusa. She will be a horse. She will be a mermaid.
She will be beautiful. She will be a monster.
Poseidon will fall in love with her.
He will be transformed into a horse to conquer her.
Athena will get angry. She will put a curse on her.
She will isolated her on a rock.
Anyone who looks at her will turn to stone.
Anyone who looks at her will die.
No one will be able to approach her.
No one but me.
