Craic In a Rock
Craic in a Rock builds on the performance A Date with Sedusa by Maggie Irving, performed in Plymouth in 2012. The show looks at the mischievous and transformative power of laughter and clowning told through the re-vamped myths of Medusa, Baubo and Sisyphus. The film Sedusa Medusa asks the audience to connect with strangers using playful and harmless seduction techniques. Sedusa, a snaky haired gorgon comes from a crack in a cave. Petrifaction alert! Seduction and stones come to life through Sedusa's craic with the audience and her desire to be remembered as a face for transformation. Baubo, the crone trickster emerges as an embodiment of pleasure (performed by Carole Crawford). Bawdy Baubo is savvy, sassy and jolly naughty. Meanwhile Miss Sisyphus (Dagmar Schwitzgebel) rocks up. Craic in a Rock is a blend of film, audience interaction, character play, dance, clowning and gifting. Lives are not set in stone; whilst stone is dead, it is alive with durability. A gifted stone reminds the audience to re-vision myth and to remember that Medusa and Baubo's laughter rocks.
