Description

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 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 in a foreign land, filled with rage. 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, unique stage presence to bring to life the murderous Medea in this evocative lament, featuring live music by acclaimed composer and music producer, Phil Von.

Join performer, François Testory, for an exclusive Solo Performance Masterclass on Saturday 18 November at 2pm. 

Translated, adapted, and directed by Neil Bartlett 

Part of SHOUT Festival.
