Created on the coast of Barcelona and inspired by its marine life, Jasmin Vardimon presents her new work Medusa. Celebrating 20 years of the Jasmin Vardimon Company, this piece examines the gendered historical significance of Medusa; the myth, the symbolism and the philosophical idea of ‘reflection’.
This new full-length production not only looks back to deconstruct the myth but will also look forward and explore her aquatic symbolism in the environmental future of our seas. Jasmin Vardimon is another leading female choreographer that we are excited to feature this season. We enjoyed having the Jasmin Vardimon Company work with the DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training students over the summer this year, and we are very fortunate to welcome them back for this three-night run, you won’t want to miss the company in action.
Please be aware this performance contains strong haze, moderate strobes and some adult content.
Co-commissioned by Sadler’s Wells, Gulbenkian, Kent County Council, DanceEast and International Arts Barcelona.
