2015 Capital Fringe Preview #6: Preview Article: ‘Girl Versus Corinth’ by Danny Baird and Michael Windsor

Medea’s back and she’s putting the pulse back in expulsion! The feminist revolution is in full swing, and Medea’s been resurrected by a band of feminist specters who are ready to riot grrrl. In Girl Versus Corinth, there’s nothing that can stop these prominent she-beasts from making their voices heard. With a score of electronic music to back the beltings of these bad bitches gone by, the waves of feminism unite in a tsunami of sound- lending their spirits to the modern fight for equality.
