I, MEDEA - أنا، ميديّا
A Theatre play by Sulaiman Al-Bassam
Music by Abed Kobeissy and Ali Hout (Two or The Dragon) and Hala Omran
"I, Medea" draws on the eroding infrastructures of fact in a digital world, to re-imagine Medea for an era of tech-driven authoritarianism. In this poetic and politically charged re-writing, Medea figures as an educated and outspoken Arab woman, who re-directs the tools of surveillance directed at her by an authoritarian state to re-enact the violence of history, accumulated over generations, inside the ranks of her family unit.
Written and directed by Sulaiman Al-Bassam
Music: Two or The Dragon and Hala Omran
