It’s cold outside, and raining - probably… definitely. Everyone has gone home. The night is dragging the dark reluctantly behind it as day drifts slowly away. No one is left without or within. None to shine a light, none to cast a shadow, none to look upon what isn’t there.

Dark Villages captures life at the centre of the living and housing crisis. Prospects are bleak, yet a light shines at the end of the street; diligently, faithfully, patiently waiting for us to turn on the rest.

In rooms like this room people lie. Not little lies, the kinds of lies that kill people, or worse…

In this room, or in rooms like this room, they use phrases like collateral damage, like extraordinary rendition, like perception management. They cover up their dirty words with clean ones, in rooms like this room. In rooms like this room they redact the names.

In rooms like this room, language is laundered. The name of the game is spin.

Dead Cats blends new writing, performance, film-making, and an obvious plant, to show – not tell – the truths behind the fictions.

What if there was another take on the Trojan War, an untold-breathtaking-adventure you had never heard before?

Enter Medusa. She was there.

Monstrous gorgon? Snakes for hair? A turn-to-stone glare? Perhaps. But she was there - as a bodiless head strapped to the shield of a goddess.

Her forever-open-eyes saw it all: Epic combat. Mighty swords. Giant horse-sculptures filled with men. But as the war raged on, Medusa’s petrifying gaze focused on three extraordinary women who might just hold the key to her ultimate hope.
