Photo Preview: Dario D'Ambrosi's MEDEA

Medea is coming to La MaMa in October!

In Medea, Dario D’Ambrosi, combines professional actors, who perform with a chorus of 14 actors with diverse abilities (including epilepsy, neurological disabilities and down syndrome) to create an aurally and visually stimulating production of the Euripides play. The differently-abled actors from the University program of D'Ambrosi's Rome-based "Magic of Theater" Drama Academy serve as the chorus perform in Attic Greek. 

Dario D'Ambrosi, one of Italy's most distinguished theater artists, has made a career of productions about people with psychiatric disabilities, devising productions that portray their unique perspective on life. His stunning and visceral version of Euripides' tragedy debuted at La MaMa in 2011. In 2012, it was presented at Wilton's Music Hall in London and was awarded the Wilton Prize as Best Show of the Season. It has also been awarded the "Lupa Capitolina" Award in Rome, a Mayoral honor.
