Playwright Sivan Ben Yishai takes the story of Medusa as a mythological starting point and frame of reference for negotiating rules, fears and violent fantasies. Her play is a modern survey of the patriarchal gender model as a cross-cultural and epoch-spanning system of violence that reproduces itself thanks to toleration and support. Songs to lovers and tales of young girls’ hopeful dreams for the future reflect hetero-sexist norms. And the work’s propulsive narrative energy allows us become part of a powerful hunt – on the paved highways of history, both backwards and forwards.

Content note: the text contains many descriptions of sexualised acts of violence which could have a debilitating and re-traumatising effect.
