Lament for Medea, A
Lament for Medea, A
Medea was a sorceress princess who helped Jason steal the Golden Fleece from her Father and having fled with him and borne his children was then abandoned for another princess who brought a kingdom with her. Medea sent a poisoned garment as a gift to her replacement, killed her own children and flew off in a chariot drawn by dragons. This is not a retelling of her story, though it draws on elements of it and is full of reminders of the tragedy. Knowledge the legend is not a prerequisite and perhaps may produce a more closed response than that of those who come without it. You take a longer route than usual to Studio 2 and, having removed shoes and socks in an anteroom, are ushered to a small space where a middle-aged servant is cutting up what looks like onions and offal. the last show I saw in the theatre upstairs was Thyestes, with its child-cooking, and a television programme about eating placentas perhaps coloured my interpretation of what this was, it might have meant no more than routine domesticity. Stopping her work, the woman takes each member of the audience, joining hands with them to lead them past a hanging curtain and into a dimly lit space where another woman, clad in black, guides them down a step or two and through a foot-deep tank of water to a specific place along a ledge that surrounds it.
