Brighton Festival news: Medea, Written in Rage

Latest update from Brighton Festival:

Medea returns from history. And this time she’s telling her own story…


Written by Jean-René Lemoine, Directed by Festival regular Neil Bartlett and featuring extraordinary performer and vocalist François Testory, this powerful new vision of ancient myth features live music by Phil Von to create a searing statement about marginalisation and exile.

Jean-René Lemoine’s reimagining of the classic tale of passion and revenge casts Medea as the ultimate outsider. This dramatic monologue – half witness statement, half incantation – takes us from ancient Greece to modern Europe and back again in a provocative, blood soaked collage of performance, opera and sexual confession.

‘…a potent mixture of poetic grace and graphic information.’ The Stage

By Neil Bartlett / Jean-René Lemoine
