MEDEA

Mon 8 April at 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

BMEC presents a Shock Therapy Arts production
MEDEA
By Euripides
Devised and directed by Sam Foster and Hayden Jones

This stylised Medea combines Greek Tragedy, Epic and Physical Theatre and to deliver a gripping experience with a thumping soundtrack.

Award-winning Queensland performance makers Shock Therapy Arts put their signature touch on this timely Greek Classic. One of the great plays of the western canon, this psychological thriller follows the story of Medea, as the pressures of court politics, family, and discrimination within the patriarchy start to unravel her world. Themes that are, unfortunately, just as relevant today

Medea is a former Barbarian Princess who left her world behind for the man she loves. When she learns that her husband Jason, leader of the Argonauts, is planning to leave her to marry Glauce, the Greek Princess of Corinth, her love and passion turns to blind rage. With her place in Greek society already under threat, Medea is then banished into exile. This devastating betrayal drives Medea to plot a shocking and calculated revenge on Jason and take back control in a society ruled by men.

Devised & Directed by Sam Foster & Hayden Jones
Lighting Design by Geoff Squires and David Carberry
Sound Design by Guy Webster
Cast: Sam Foster, Hayden Jones, Sarah McLeod

Shock Therapy Arts is proudly supported by the City of Gold Coast.
