LA MEDEA (2017 premiere)

Director, Yara Travieso
Score and Libretto, Sam Crawford
Set Design by Brookhart Jonquil
Director of Photography and Production Manager, Pamela Giaroli

-----------------------------------------------------------
La Medea, adapts Euripides' Medea as a Latin American variety show. Simultaneously a live musical, live TV simulcast, and feature film, this dark-comedy is directed, performed, shot, edited, and streamed in real time. Tragedy, comedy, and spectacle come together in a multi-camera inquisition on archetypes. Shifting between musical number, talk show, and telenovela, La Medea’s performers and camera operators play the characters, while studio audiences and those tuning in via broadcast, act as Greek chorus. Set as a true TV studio, La Medea lays bare the behind-the-scenes, creating a high-stakes vulnerability for cast, crew and audiences alike.
