Medea, Antigone 2014

 École LASSAAD International School of Theatre

In May 2014 the LASSAAD Theatre School performed at the street theater festival « Sortileges » in Ath. Students who are in their final performed two tragedies, Antigone and Medea.

Audience were taken up in a whirlwind of emotions by the evocation of images suggested by a choreography of movement and borne by the texts of Sophocles and Euripides.

Performed indoors in the Tour de Brabant which is a medieval dungeon.

This castle tower was the obvious choice to perform in. It has a magical quality from its past and also from its high vaulted architecture. It links below and above, earth and heaven, just as the verticality of tragedy creates the relationship between men and gods.

In July 2014, the cast of Medea performed for inmates at the womens Prison of Saint-Gilles in Brussels, Belgium.
