Improv Theatre Co. & Training Center

True Medusa

True Medusa

True Medusa is an all-female identified Improv Ensemble with Leela (SF) who began in January 2012. About our name: True Medusa comes from the mythology behind Medusa, with the “true medusa” being the woman Medusa was before she was cursed. We take that to mean something along the lines of “woman before culture defined everything she was.” So in our work, we are everything – men, women, elephants, children, tables, robots, corpses, etc. And we do everything too, because women can do whatever they want. Amen? True Medusa performs a variety of long-form structures focused on Leela’s training center mission of truthful, artistic play. They showcase authentic relationships in an absurd world. Surrealism, hilarity, and kookiness abounds.
