Theater Mitu premieres their radical adaptation of the classic Greek tragedy

Theater Mitu has showcased an ability for developing outstanding ensemble-driven work using their Whole Theater methodology, drawing from world theatre traditions to create an experience that is rigorously visual, aural, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. Now Mitu faces its newest challenge with their unique and engaging reimagining of Euripedes’ MEDEA.

Embarking once again on what the company refers to as their FEAR CYCLE, this work began with a simple question: As an actor, what would be the most terrifying role you can think of playing?

This violent adaptation examines the plays perceptions of gender by presenting the famed villain of MEDEA as a man and her paramour, JASON, as a woman. Melding elements of Japanese Noh and Butoh with early German cinema theory, this piece delves deep into the heart of one of the most violent and dark of human crimes.
