La Medea

October 25-27 | 8:00PM

MDC Live Arts

Euripides’ myth of the wild foreign woman who vengefully murders her own children is shattered in this genre-bending musical. As a live simulcast and feature film that is directed, performed, shot and edited in real time, Yara Travieso’s La Medea creates a high-stakes vulnerability for cast, crew and audiences alike. Performers and camera operators play the characters, while studio audiences act as the Greek chorus. The reality-TV dramatics reveal not a dangerous outsider but an infinite woman who rejects the limited gaze imposed on her.
