In Sulayman Al Bassam’s award winning new text, Medea figures as an educated and outspoken Arab woman, living in a secular European state, with a powerful social media following. Finding herself at odds with the populist ruler for her outspoken political views, Medea re-directs the tools of state surveillance put upon her to re-enact the violence of history, accumulated over generations.
Performed by award winning Franco-Syrian actress, Hala Omran, and accompanied by a mesmerising live score performed by Lebanese electro-acoustic duo, “Two, Or the Dragon”, the performance lies midway between a live rock concert and slam poetry session. I M E D E A has generated exceptional reactions from audiences and critics alike as it continues its world tour.
Directed by Sulayman Al Bassam.
