Women on the tips” “Medea

Within the frame of the Universal Day of Cultural Heritance the House of Europe in Rhodes, as the official sponsor, has repeated the performance which had been presented also on 03/04/2011. This time it took place in the atrium of the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes, the former Hospital of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, titled: “Women on the tips” “Medea”, a revolutionary theatrical performance, an apologetic plea of Medea .

In a combination of four factors: vocal, body movement, music and speach, a re-reading of the known topic of the tragedy “Medea” by Euripides is attempted, with contemporary feminine terms, marking out Medea’ s point of view, her own reason, her own plea, which remained so far shaded throughout time, in the margin of the patriarchal expression of Art.
