29-31 January 2016
An original theatre production directed by Yorgos Karamalegos and inspired by Euripides’ Medea.
“Home” is a new beginning in Yorgos’ career after a decade with Tmesis Theatre and four years of research in theatre making through his international laboratory for performance – Physical Lab.
The world of ‘Home’ is a poetic landscape and a hero’s journey exploring the feelings of alienation, power, love, betrayal, and freedom. It explores the symbolisms behind one of the most famous and powerful characters in the history of drama and promises to be an evocative and highly entertaining piece.
It has been created in collaboration with actress/dramaturg Despina Sidiropoulou, and the cast includes Yorgos Karamalegos, Despina Sidiropoulou and Tatiana spivakova. The drama is supported by movement director Pablo Aran Gimeno (Pina Bausch Tanzthater company); stylist Venia Palychronaki; and lighting manager Marc Williams (National Theatre).
The premiere takes place at the Unity Theatre in Liverpool on the 24th & 25th of November 2015, followed by the London premiere on the 29th & 30th of January at Chisenhale Dance Space.
