About The Play:This piece draws on ancient Greek stories by Euripides & Seneca, and on modern author Heiner Mueller.The setting is an abandoned and desolate border area.Medea, expelled, outcast and aggrieved stands at the gates of Creon's palace. She awaits news of Jason, grinding her life and fate on the millstone of her memory. She has lost everything except her painfully obsessive love. Caught between the past and the present, between reality, illusion, and madness, she struggles to recall what has befallen her. She is overwhelmed by painful memories, tortured by excruciating and toxic passions and feels drawn ever closer to wicked deeds that terrify her. She imagines all the impending horrors of exile, recoiling with dread at every possible decision, every possible outcome. In her mind’s eye, she looks into the face of each of her loved ones and struggles in desperation to hold herself back from atrocious and irreversible crimes.

Reviews:a memorable and intense experience’ – London Pub Theatres Outstanding. - SEE “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” is a phrase that embodies all that Euripides’ Medea stands for. - London Theatre Reviews.

About the Play: Is it possible to imagine a world more peculiar, more hermetic than the one that is happening in the head of an adolescent girl? After returning from the camp in Auschwitz, Otto Frank, the only survivor of the Jewish community hiding in a shared apartment, discovers the secret journal of a teenage daughter. Otto meets Anna, whom he did not know, rebellious against the mother's dryness, maturing to be a woman; he meets himself and his relatives again. Is it possible to imagine a more peculiar, more hermetic world than the world condemned to inaction, unwilling to accept the horror of the adult annihilation, digesting years of family and social rituals debating endlessly about letting go of winds due to the excess of eaten beans and the superiority of a soldier in a German uniform from the beauty of a soldier in an English uniform? Otto struggles with Anna's notes more and more, searching for them - most often in vain - to trace her own influence on her daughter's maturation. Wandering among the mass of disappointments, broken tracks and lost opportunities, he comes up with a salutary idea of what else he can do to save the seemingly lost time.

play to show a connection between man & woman (a couple) through their soul, mind and body… a relation that can slave or set you free.This play will define tree human layers (soul, mind and the body). Maybe someone can free itself and learn the true meaning of growth in relationship and the other one can copy its partner.This Performance has a communication language that expresses itself through dance but it’s also inspired by ancient Iranian ritual
