Medea Noir by Arthur Meiselman, taken in part from the Euripides story with newly adapted translations of the original, follows Medea to Athens and the sanctuary of its king, Aegeus.
He now becomes the mirror of her passion and continuing anguish.In Athens, ten years after the original story ends, a new story begins. And with it, a new myth of Medea the woman, the woman of power, and a woman haunted by the
torment of memories that must finally be reconciled with her will to live.
Commissioned for the 2002 Ancient Theatre Alive! International Festival in Athens, Greece, Medea Noir is a merged media production of a ritual that blends the live stage with film, graphics and the strident use of lighting and music as significant characters on stage.
