Medea was my final directing project at The University of New Mexico and my first stab at a classic. Aristotle found Euripides a deficient dramatist in contrast to his beloved Sophocles. I adore both. When researching Electricidad, I poured over The Orestia, both Sophocles and Euripides versions of Electra, and Euripides' Orestes and found Euripides to have the most modern voice amongst the Greek tragedians. Euripides understood madness and pain and desire. For me, Medea remains a love story in which the personal trumps the political. Suzan Lori-Parks explores similar ground with In the Blood as did Federico Garcia Lorca in Yerma. I hope to direct In the Blood and Yerma as well as another Medea.
