La Medea, part concert and part film, dismantles Euripides’ Greek tragedy of the infamous foreign mother who murders her children. Staging the myth as a choreographed Latin-disco-pop variety show, the film was shot in front of a live studio audience in Brooklyn, NY. The screening features a live musical score by the wild five-piece band "Jason & The Argonauts". Embracing a multiplicity of lenses, La Medea challenges the historically prevalent image of the hysterical, dangerous, and foreign mother as she is seen through history’s skewed cinematic and literary lens. Chaos reigns beneath the surface of the classic myth in this undoing of archetypes.

Live score and Music performed by "Jason and The Argonauts" featuring Liz de Lise, Zeb Gould, Jeff Hudgins, Ian Riggs, and Arthur Solari.

“A spectacle that upends any attempt to pin it down.”

“A MODERN-DAY MEDEA IS MYTHOLOGY’S 'NASTY WOMAN'”

“La Medea boils an ancient Greek story from hyper masculinity and hero quests to the personal pain of one woman, Medea, whose anger and sorrow alone charge this performance with an ageless power."
