Now in its 20th anniversary year, Jasmin Vardimon Company celebrates with a brand new production, Medusa; a reflection on the powerful feminine symbol, the myth and its various connotations in our contemporary life.

Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Jasmin Vardimon’s work looks at the gendered historical significance and the philosophical idea of ‘reflection’ associated with the snake-haired gorgon.

Created on and inspired by the coast of Spain where the word ’medusa’ means jellyfish, it will also explore what environmental fate awaits our seas.

Bringing together a remarkable international cast, Vardimon shows off her highly physical choreographic style in this epic theatrical piece.
