O Medea

Celebrated choreographer Trajal Harrell returns to the Onassis Stegi with “O Medea” (30 May – 2-June 2019).

A five – person chorus in the role of Medea re-reads the work’s ethical and political issues, revising them for a comtemporary context. How would Medea speak, dance, and take here revenge in 2019?

Medea always returns. Euripides’s emblematic heroine has, in her way, haunted all modes of artistic creation. From the big screen, to modern dance, to opera, and even to the visual and plastic arts, no other figure has been so strongly influential through time. For apart from her undeniable “mythological” range, Medea also epitomizes the paradox of an internal schism: the Other within the Self.

Celebrated choreographer Trajal Harrell returns to the Onassis Stegi with yet another work, part of a trilogy in the making. Through timely meditation on philosophical and political questions, “O Medea” focuses both on historical aspects of Medea and on representations of the female psyche that surpass the limits of time.

The heroine’s dilemmas and the ritual element of myth are transformed into the personal narrations of a five-member Chorus who activate the figure of Medea to express stories and issues of their own.
