Mike's Brass is back! The group that bought you High Flight,Circus McGurkus, and Rumpus brings their signature dance + live brass quintet + spoken word to greek mythology, this time telling the story of Medusa from her point of view (with the help of a few puppets). 
Rachael, who plays Medusa, was born with a condition known as Amniotic-Band Syndrome: while still in the womb her hands got tangled in the amniotic bands, which stunted their growth. ABS looks drastically different depending on the person, and depending on how the bands wrap around fetus. It can cause cleft palates, missing limbs, and even miscarriage.  
Rachael has lived like this her whole life and has known nothing else, and doesn't feel like she's missing anything. For her, this is normal and she wouldn't have it any other way.
In our family friendly interpretation of the Medusa story Rachael's hands become Medusa's snakes. We explore the difference between inner beauty and outer beauty and what Medusa's transformation means. Why does different have to equal bad?
