Two one-acts employ creative storytelling, music and movement to examine addiction, mental illness and gender power. “Medusa” explores the title character, a woman, through the way man, represented by Perseus, has tried to repress and dominate her. “The Oddity” is filled with ambient sounds of a psychiatrist’s office heard through the filter of an un-medicated, schizophrenic mind. Directed by Chad Chenail.
