Medea – Sibylla Meienberg
This piece draws on ancient Greek stories by Euripides & Seneca, and on modern author Heiner Mueller.
Running time 60 min
The setting is an abandoned and desolate border area.
Medea, expelled, outcast and aggrieved stands at the gates of Creon’s palace. She awaits news of Jason, grinding her life and fate on the millstone of her memory.
She has lost everything except her painfully obsessive love. Caught between the past and the present, between reality, illusion, and madness, she struggles to recall what has befallen her. She is overwhelmed by painful memories, tortured by excruciating and toxic passions and feels drawn ever closer to wicked deeds that terrify her. She imagines all the impending horrors of exile, recoiling with dread at every possible decision, every possible outcome. In her mind’s eye, she looks into the face of each of her loved ones and struggles in desperation to hold herself back from atrocious and irreversible crimes.
