A play with the alluring ︎︎︎

The Hydra lived in Lake Lerna and guarded the gates of the Underworld. The multi-headed water creature was immortal, its blood and breath poisonous, forever  able to multiply a cut of head.

Thematics of HYDRA are inspired by the mythical water serpent, drawing from its monstrous features imagined wet, sluggish, slippery. Notions of self-exhibitionistic and performative erotic aesthetics are drawn from sexualized media content on platforms such as TikTok, Instagram and YouTube.
