Coming straight out of Greek mythology, Medea is back – and this time she wants to tell her side of the story. A blood-soaked collage of performance, opera and confession, this startlingly contemporary reimagining of the ancient Greek tale sees Medea transporting audiences from ancient Greece to modern Europe and back again through her monologues.
The story is brought vividly to life by dancer and vocalist François Testory, who fuses his extraordinary physicality, his androgynous and unique stage presence and a seven-octave vocal range for this evocative lament. The performance also features live music by acclaimed composer and music producer, Phil Von.
It’s at Cambridge Junction on 11 October; tickets are £12.50.
