Join BRIC Arts on Tuesday, May 19th at 8pm EST for a livestream screening of LA MEDEA, the made-for-camera Latin-disco-pop-feminist variety show that re-images Euripides’ myth. Declared “mythology’s ‘Nasty Woman’” by VICE, the pervasive figure of the dangerous immigrant woman who vengefully murders her own children is shattered in this genre-bending multidimensional dismantling.
LA MEDEA was written, directed, and conceived by Yara Travieso and produced by Brighid Greene, two instructors from our workshop, ON THE CHOREOGRAPHIC: DANCE AND MOVEMENT IN HYBRID FILM PRACTICES.
Viewers will be able to live chat in the comments with the performers and creators of LA MEDEA while the film streams on BRIC’s YouTube channel. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Yara Travieso, conductor Sam Crawford, and Rena Butler (playing the role of Medea).
