In the summer of 2009, Corcadorca turned its attention to another great classic, but with a distinct twist. medEia, written in 1998 by Oscar van Woensel, is a modern and unconventional retelling of the Greek tragedy of Medea. Delivered by a chorus, the poetic text is interlaced with the lyrics of groups such as The Beatles, Joy Division, Prince and Madonna.
Louis Lovett, Gina Moxley and Tadhg Murphy made a strong cast, and it involved the same creative team that produced Woyzeck at the Naval Base in 2007 and The Hairy Ape in 2008.
Venue: The Vertigo Suite, Cork County Hall, twice nightly at 9pm and 10pm from 13 June – 4 July, 2009.
