Written and directed by Fiona Templeton
Music by Samita Sinha
at Roulette, Brooklyn
8pm, December 13 & 14, 2012
This premiering collaborative musical version of the 6-play epic The Medead fuses Templeton’s multivocal poetic fireworks with Sinha’s soaring vocals and instrumentation, layering ancient and future soundscapes. Ten years in the making, The Medead ranges across history and the subconscious to excavate the multi-viewpoint reverberations of a myth – of east and west, of a woman’s power – to “sing a skin of language over the invisible.”
With Anna Kohler, Clarinda MacLow, Graziella Rossi, Dawn Saito, Valda Setterfield and Stephanie Silver, all as Medea; Peter Sciscioli as Orpheus; Andrew Zimmerman as Theseus; Adam Collignon as Jason; and William Parker as the 4 Fathers.
