About the show
Founded in 1997, the Jasmin Vardimon Company is run by Vardimon to create dance that incorporates physical theatre, text and technology. The company create their own work, as well as run an education programme and tour nationally and internationally. Vardimon is known for her unique style of choreography incorporating a range of influences from her life on a Kibbutz in Israel to classical literature.
Vardimon’s production of Medusa explores the role of a historical woman of power and the notions of reflection that are associated with the creature who turned men to stone if they looked her in the eye. As she deconstructs the myth, she looks at both the past and future of Medusa and her relationship with the earth and how the environment is changing.
This dance was developed on the Spanish coast and draws additional influence from the aquatic life that lives there. This diverse collection of influences is sure to make for a fascinating dance piece in Vardimon’s distinctive style, playing a limited run at London's Sadler's Wells from 22 October to 24 October 2018.
