Medea: ‘Whether the story is correct, I don’t know. I wish it wasn’t.
Medea tied to a chair. The actor Jason is also the director of six actors of Theater Stap: Medea and Jason, the Princess, the nanny, the children.
The actors are material to Jason, the actor. At least, that’s what he thinks or hopes.
Medea: ‘ I don’t want any luxury that hurts, no riches when my heart is tormented.’
‘After a performance, something must have happened inside your head. Theatre doesn’t have to provide answers, but should ask questions: ‘What, for God’s sake, made all this turn loose in a human being?’
