I am Medea.
The woman at the stake.
Who was accused a child murderer by Euripides.
Medea, a WOMAN IN REVOLT.
I am Medea.
Who shouldn’t, couldn’t, and didn’t want to find a home.
The woman who craved, feared, and wanted everyone dead.
BLOOD ON HER LIPS.
WE ARE MEDEA: Rroma, on the outskirts of the cities. Spat on, threatened, chased away. You call our children pestilence.
You call yourselves civilized and us barbarians.
DON’T TELL US WHO WE ARE!
MEDEA RROMNJA explores and dissects the myth of MEDEA, from which an international team, consisting of Rroma and non-Rroma, creates a powerful performance that not only reveals (unconscious) prejudices, but also offers Rroma assured departure points to reclaim their own history and future.
