ANNA ZUBRZYCKI STUDIO
When it comes to true love, fate knows no mercy
Medea is a journey from light to dark, from joy to despair, into the deepest and
also darkest aspects of the human psyche. An extraordinary love cracks in the
face of political decisions and gives rise to wild and dangerous forces.
An exceptional woman , deserted in a foreign land, dominated by male power,
finds herself cornered. Though she is strong, and knows her power, she cannot
change the course of fate.
This ancient Greek tragedy has returned to find its new place in our
contemporary political and social context, in these times of great migrations,
cultural conflicts and clashes of values.
