Columbia University School of the Arts Presents MEDEA Directed by Miriam Grill
Columbia University School of the Arts presents Miriam Grill's (Columbia MFA Directing Candidate 2019) production of Medea.
Medea is humiliated. No husband. No homeland. Jason has betrayed her, leaving her abandoned and exiled. But if she can pull off her bloody plan before the sun rises, she'll not only claim vengeance but also her divine birthright. If it's a choice between silence and complicity, Medea will take the third option: she'll raze the House of Corinth to the ground.
Told in present-day times with an international cast representing over nine countries, this highly physicalized staging of Euripides' Medea explores gender roles, citizenship, and justice in a divided world.
