La Medea is a musical re-imagining of Euripides’ violent tragedy, dance-theater in the style of a Latin-disco-pop variety show. Directed, performed, filmed, edited, and streamed in real time with a live studio audience, La Medea brings theater to cinema and cinema to theater. Embracing a multiplicity of cultural lenses, La Medea confronts the historically prevalent image of the hysterical, dangerous, foreign woman, while also offering the revolutionary female figure willing to destroy her own children in the name of justice. Chaos reigns beneath the skin of a classic myth.
