In early 2018 I codirected Taina Mäki-Iso‘s solo performance with her combining clownery and theatre. Since then the bilingual MEDEA: Clownish Rage Management has been touring. The solo is based on a Greek myth about a woman, Medea, killing her children as revenge. Martta the Clown gets the role, but is appalled by the horrors of the story: how on earth can these dreadful things be told? The piece is particularly made suitable for young audiences, 10 year olds and older. But works well for adults, too!
MEDEA: Clownish Rage Management is on Jyväskylä City Theatre main stage on Friday 5th of July at 7pm as a part of Jyväskylä Festival.
