After: Euripides
Staging: Leonie Böhm

“I’ll go to the extreme” says Medea – and behind there searches for a world in which she is also assigned meaning. How can justice be established when everything is out of balance? Together with the actor Maja Beckmann and the musician Johannes Rieder, Leonie Böhm explores the myth and leads it beyond tragedy. Medea* is a tale of resistance and radicalism. But also about the desire to recover, to transform – and to rise above oneself.
