The Wrong Side of History

Medusa With The Head of Perseus

Luciano Garbati


The Medusa Project explores survival and the cyclical violence of history, by colliding the myth of Medusa with the true story of the Raft of Medusa. It is an immersive, poetic work, with the audience scattered through a gallery space containing performers, a grand piano, and vast, metaphoric images projected across all surfaces. It will be presented in 2022 in Melbourne.

With videography by Ivanka Sokol (2008 Green Room Award Winner, Audio Visual – Independent Theatre, Oedipus: A Poetic Requiem; 2006 Green Room Award Nominee, Audio Visual – Independent Theatre, The Damask Drum)​.
