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, blood-soaked collage of performance, opera, and sexual confession.
The performer, dancer, and vocalist, François Testory fuses his extraordinary physicality, and androgynous and unique stage presence with a seven-octave vocal range to bring to life the murderous Medea in this evocative lament, featuring live music by acclaimed composer and music producer, Phil Von.
Suitable for ages 16+
