Medea, written in rage
By Jean René Lemoine
Translated, adapted, and directed by Neil Bartlett
Performed by François Testory
Medea returns from history. This time, she's telling her side of the story…
The stage is set for a gig - a microphone, a bank of speakers, and smoke hanging in the air. A figure in an extraordinary gown emerges from the shadows. This is Medea - returned from history to tell us her version of events.
This startling, contemporary reimagining of the ancient Greek legend of passion and revenge casts Medea as the ultimate outsider, a stranger filled with rage in a foreign land. Her monologue transports us from ancient Greece to modern Europe and back again in a provocative, bloodsoaked collage of performance, opera, and sexual confession.
