“ARCHET-HIP-HOP | THE GREEK THEATRE IN REMIX” is an experimental work: cinema and theatre will tell the story of Medea on the stage and on the screen, the audiovisual screening live together with the theatrical performance.
The event is composed of four chapters taken from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s "Medea" projected in large format, with no audio and no subtitles. While the images are shown, with no audio nor subtitles, some keywords will appear like the former descriptions of mute films. The choreographer JWJ Ferguson will guide the dancers (representing the Greek Chorus and able to represent the different concepts of the drama) in a performance of a contemporary/ experimental dance. The soundtrack is a selection of music offered by Mr Ryuichi Sakamoto.
Choreography/Direction: JWJ Ferguson
