Medea, The Foreigner is coming to London| 28 July, 2010
Medea, The Foreigner will be arriving in London on 31st August after a spell in Lisbon. A Modern adaptation of Euripides’ tragedy Medea that focuses on the theme of being a foreigner, and the experience of living in a foreign land, this multidisciplinary performance is also a multinational collaborative project (between citizens of Brazil, UK, Portugal and Spain) initiated by Nicole Pschetz and Patrícia Carreira.
The original idea for the show came from the desire to start a work with a common frame of reference. Both artists and foreigners resident in London, they realised that common experience could work as a catalyst for the creation of an innovative work.
By comparing and contrasting their own experiences with that of character Medea, their adaptation allows them to reflect on aspects related to their foreign and local lands. The live performance makes use of text, elements of Corporeal Mime, music and also video projections.
Medea, The Foreigner will be at the Bridewell Theatre from 31st August until 4th September.
Time: 7:30pm (Tuesday to Saturday) and 2:30pm (Saturday matinée)
