MEDEA

Live from Amsterdam, streamed exclusively for Adelaide Festival

Live from Amsterdam, streamed exclusively for Adelaide Festival / Internationaal Theater Amsterdam We broke down the experience of attending an international performance into its essential parts: you have to travel to a theatre to see a specific show, at a specific time and date, with lots of strangers around you, united in a compact space to see the same event, performed live, as a group. There is a potent exchange between artists and audience throughout the show that reaches its peak at the end of the night, when the performers look into the audience to take their curtain call and you acknowledge the shared experience with applause. Medea, created for Ivo van Hove’s Internationaal Theater Amsterdam, is one of his most in-demand. Euripides’ tragedy of 430BC was a popular hit in Ancient Greece and, while the predicament of its protagonist has been refracted through the lenses of every age’s prevailing morality, it remains timeless: a brilliant woman sacrifices everything for love of a man but, after bearing two children, finds herself of no further use to him and is expected to accept his choice of a new younger partner. Context: ubiquitous and relatable. Crime: unthinkable and unforgivable, but ever-fascinatin

Contains strong language, violence, nudity, sexual references and references to mental illness and drug use. Recommended for audiences 16+. ** Checker Board seating applies to this event - the green seats are available for selection and seating only **
