Medusa

The tape meshes psychoanalysis, a feminist view of the subjective and raw deadpan humour in a black comic reassessment of the smothering Mother of myth. Taking a mother and daughter's remembrance the tape explores age old archetype. We see Medusa, seduced and abandoned and pregnant with the bastard Pegasus, refusing to yield to her fate.

Music by Sylvia Hallett
Performed by Zoe Redman and Clara Thomas
