Medea features live music by acclaimed composer and music producer, Phil Von.
"What is the border between sheer passion and sanity? Should unconditional love hold limits? Are our own intimate personal tragedies relevant in a contemporary social world which dictates caution and safety at any cost? Are we becoming more and more lukewarm and disembodied beings?
I was very honoured to join this team of talents. François and I worked together in the past. We met when he was performing with Lindsay Kemp. My thrill grew when I understood this demanding project would be a real adventure which could challenge me and take me out of my comfort zone.
Francois' voice is a jewel which doesn’t need superfluous ornaments. Music should not be illustrative or overpowering. Music is our beating heart, memories, nature, vibrations, an extension of our soul towards the invisible. I envision a contrast between raw depth and airy spirituality. Such "Medean" love can give you wings and can drag you down to the pit."
Medea (Written in Rage) is at The Place from 5-7 Oct. Find out more and book tickets here.
