Medea Redux

Medea, woman of Asia, has sacrificed all for the sake of her love of Jason and his quest for the Golden Fleece.
For him, she betrayed her own family, murdered her brother, and gave him two sons.
Now everything has turned to hate.
Jason has betrayed both wife and children.
He is taking a royal bride, the daughter of Creon, King of Corinth.
Medea is injured, ferocious, full of spite.
Any man who crosses her does so at his own peril…

Director Statement

After becoming intrigued with the character of Medea, I decided to distill Euripides’s play by using mostly one performer and concentrate on few characters. Using the basic structure of the original text, I integrated other mediums for the purpose of serving the story. Our discourse is, therefore, both verbal and non-verbal. It is an interface with language, visual components of movement, dance and theatrical design elements. Doing so makes the production a shocker, both spectacular and disturbing.

Although Medea is an historical character, she lives in our imagination.
She belongs to our global culture and has become, through time, a legendary figure.
Rather than giving one singular illustration, Medea is a surrealist piece with fantastical elements. Medea aspires to be a whisper in everyone’s mind regardless of our origin.
