“You Walk Woman”From MedusaMusic by Rachel Dean; Lyrics by Wes Braver
About the show: Based on the original Greek myth, MEDUSA is the story of a woman who tries to make her own fate in a patriarchal world. When the god Poseidon assaults her by the sea one night, she learns just how little power she holds in the supposedly free and enlightened city of Athens. As Medusa fights back against both gods and mortals, rumors fly about this angry woman with “snakes in her hair.” The legend is born. Told with modern language and a darkly energetic score, MEDUSA is an ancient tragedy that is as timely and necessary now as ever.
The song “You Walk Woman” takes place just after Medusa is left alone on the beach by her assailant, Poseidon. In traumatic shock, and as her sister-priestesses look for her, she makes her way home.
