Duration of performance 1hour 30min

The starting point for the "Medea's room" is the classic story of Medea, which appears daily in the headlines of newspapers and in criminal television news reportages. The performance of the performance is born at the time of creative laboratories with young actors. Actors investigate cases of violence by their own or their relatives, which are avoided and not talked about in the public space. The creative team of the "Medieval Room" performs "uncomfortable" questions for themselves and the public: How much cruelty are there from? What is the desire to destroy in man? Why does he harm another?

The links between the performance "Medea's room" and the antique series, interpreted by Euripides or J. Anouilh, are not direct but rather associative. In the story of Medea, who left Jason and his revenge for killing his children, there is practically only a leitmotif of violence or cruelty, and in the 10-minute premiere of the performance, lightningly and precisely, the fars on Medea played with the finest grotesque play remains in practice. The spectator is indirectly provoked to look for parallels between the cartouche of the Medea myth's stage miniature and the much more intimate, documentary-based scenic existence in which the actors try to unite the spaces of performances and spectators, and to tell the audience directly about the scenic story associated with the act of violence and its representation on the stage. The eyes of the viewers slowly begin to create a sensitive, open, and multi-layered artistic ruthless studio.
