At aod HQ we are busy planning for a new, radical aerial version of Medea.
‘Let nothing stop you from seeing them’
Medea piloted in 2013, supported by The Rose Theatre Kingston. Six years on we are redeveloping the production, working collaboratively with a new writer, director, designer and cast. We are developing the aerial and wall running elements of the production, emboldening these vital aspects to create our most ambitious show to date.
Featuring a strong element of choral singing, (dissonance and harmony - including Balkan, Georgian, Corsican and Greek songs) our Medea will get to the emotional heart of the story and under the skin of our heroine. This exhilarating adaptation will combine powerful storytelling with aerial dance and live singing in a tense psychological drama of jealousy and revenge.
Medea will be accompanied by a varied educational outreach programme of workshops, talkbacks and a DVD of the show which will not only appeal to students studying the play, but also to modern audiences who love exciting takes on the Classics.
We are looking for commissioning partners to support the show; for commissioning and programming enquiries contact firstname.lastname@example.org
