MEDEA: WRITTEN IN RAGE
By Jean René Lemoine
Directed and translated by Neil Bartlett
This startling, contemporary reimagining of the ancient Greek legend of passion and revenge casts Medea as the ultimate outsider, a stranger in a foreign land, filled with rage.
Her monologue transports us from ancient Greece to modern Europe in a provocative, blood-soaked collage of performance, opera and sexual confession.
François Testory uses his extraordinary physicality and unique stage presence to bring to life the murderous Medea in this evocative lament which features live music by the acclaimed composer, Phil Von.
