Medea Medea

A woman dressed in black holds up a blow torch.

A reworking of the Medea myth. Directed by Dylan Tighe.

WINNER OF THE GATE / HEADLONG NEW DIRECTIONS AWARD 2009

Season Closed

MEDEA exists as one of the primal myths of Western civilisation - the wronged everywoman.

Inspired by previous reworkings of the myth from Euripides to Von Trier, Dylan Tighe explores this essential narrative using the very latest stage technologies.

Actors and dancers, live and pre-recorded image and music, found texts and real objects all combine in a piece which collides classic Greek tragedy with the forms and energies of modern performance art.

A co-production with Gate Theatre.
