THE MEDEA CASE (KAUZA MÉDEIA)
1 m, 2 f
The play inspired by the classical ancient tragedy by Euripides. Desperate Medea meets Glauke, the young princess of Corinth who is going to marry the father of Medea’s two children Jason. The play is focused on the last part of the plot, where Medea makes the decision to kill the mistress and the children.
May be Medea’s point of view is as old fashioned as modern Glauke says. She is a super-modern person – she studies at the Uni, knows karate and capoeira, she learns the dolphin language and can whistle simple sentences. And there certainly are some sexual practices Medea hasn’t even heard of. Glauke would have easily topped her, if she wasn’t so naive and lacking any kind of understanding or sympathy. Medea on the other hand is tough and uncompromising, but her world makes at least a basic sense. The third world presented in the play is the world of Jason – the world of an egoistic manhood.
The play was premiered in A Studio Rubín in Prague in December 2010.
