La MaMa E.T.C presents the world-premiere adaptation of Perseus,
directed and adapted by Ellen Stewart. Loosely based on excerpts from Ovid, Hesiod and Apollodorus with additional text by Ms. Stewart - Perseus is the often-told, but rarely-performed saga of Perseus the son of Danae and the god Zeus - who slew the serpent-headed Medusa and married the beautiful maiden Andromeda after saving her from a sea monster. Ms. Stewart - in her research of the Perseus tale - discovered that the Persian race was descended from the offspring of Perseus and Andromeda, something not believed to be widely known.
Performed by The Great Jones Repertory Company.
