MEDEA by Annouchka Bayley Company

A re-working of Euripides' classic play, by Annouchka Bayley and Company.

When Medea, a foreign queen, learns that her husband, Jason, is abandoning her to marry the King's daughter, she sets down a road that leaves nothing unchanged.

A tale about foreignness, emancipation, passion, and politics.

A highly visual site-specific work, combining performance art with lyrical text.
