Women at their extremes: “Maedea”

Within the context of the International Women’s Day and the International Day for Culture and main sponsor the House of Europe in Rhodes, the theatrical performance “Maedea” has been presented with main topic “Women at their extremes” with a revolutionary presentation of the drama of Maedea. The performance took place at the magic patio of the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes.

Through a “quartet” of voice, body-movement, music and recitation, a new reading of the known tragedy of Euripides Maedea is attempted, under new, contemporary feminine terms, marking out the heroine’s arguments which have remained obscure, within the margins of the patriarchal expression of art.
