She’s a bad bitch with snakes for hair and a glance that turns men to stone, but literally only gets two lines in most mythology textbooks. Basically, her Wikipedia needs a serious update.
Standard Bank Ovation Award-winning Medusa Incarnate is a contemporary retelling of the Greek Medusa myth. Except, Medusa’s dead now and (spoiler alert!) so are you. Don’t panic - Medusa’s got you covered.
From her pink plastic paradise, she’ll guide you through Hades. Turns out the underworld is more of a party than anyone expected, and actually, hell is just never getting to take off your heels. But like, ever.
“An irreverent, bubbly and contemporary Medusa retells Greek mythology in a highly relatable, eccentric and humorous way. A fun quirky one-woman show” – Nita Coetzee (The Herald)
“Former Athenian priestess turned Gorgon, Medusa, tells her epic life story from her point of view in this witty, tongue-in-cheek tale from Greek mythology. Cleverly narrated and performed by writer and artist Kate Pinchuck, the story of the monstrous woman with venomous snakes for hair [...] has a few extra twists and turns” – Devon Koen (The Herald)
“Kate Pinchuck wowed, stunned, shocked and entertained in her one-woman show Medusa Incarnate. Pinchuck served us Medusa like we’ve never seen her before. She gave such a powerful performance that to say she was “charismatic” would be an understatement. [...] If you’ve ever wondered about Medusa or her story, or if you’re simply a lover of Greek mythology then this show is a definite must-see. And if you’re not one for the Greeks then see it anyway and you might just change your mind.” - Toby Ngomane (Cue Media)
