In this act Lily plays the role of a beautiful maiden whose vow of celibacy was broken and was punished with a hideous curse.
In Greek mythology, Medusa was a monster often described as a winged human female with living venomous snakes as hair, gazers upon her face would turn to stone.
The act is set in the aftermath of receiving her curse, with choreography showing allurement and facial expressions depicting anguish; representing the battle of the two narratives - one that she consensually broke her vow of celibacy and the other that she was raped.
To Trentmøller’s ‘Deceive You’, Lily will enchant and surprise with her serpentine choreography and screaming headdress reveal.
At the end of the act, Medusa survives and retrieves her own head.
This is a salacious, theatrical , ritualistic and emotional routine with a confetti headdress reveal and an optional finale of wax pouring.
First Performed: April 2018
