“This is not Medea”
(excerpt from the Medea Material,
by H. Miller, mtf. E. Varopoulou).
INVITATION TO TEA
As a modern female being, Medea invites us to a tea ceremony to tell us her own story of grief and liberation.
If Medea were a place, what place would it be? What does Jason carry with him? What do Medea’s children drink? Where does Medea dwell within us? Does love pass? How is the past exorcised? And after all, what shoes are suitable for a climb in the sun?
Please be open to revising what you take for granted about the mythical figure of Medea. It is a cry for survival, an ode to motherhood, an appeal to tenderness, an ecstatic dance of liberation, where Medea, light in a crumbling world, calls for rebellion against the socio-political dictates of her gender.
Dresscode: Wear something in shades of croc or something that evokes natural or primitive materials, or whatever makes you feel your deepest self.
