Boulouki Theatre presents
The Montreal Premiere of
Directed and adapted by Manolis Antoniou,
after Heiner Müller & Jean Anouilh
December 14th – December 17th, 2017
We are in a post-Medea era. Everything has happened already. And Medea is still here to remind us. She stages a play for us. The time is timeless, the space is spaceless as in history where time and space become immaterial because history repeats itself.
In Boulouki Theatre’s debut, Medeamaterial, the marginal character of Medea – the colonized, the conquered, the barbarian, the aftereffect of the colonization of the “civilized” West over the “barbaric” East and of the violent prevalence of the first over the latter offers a solution. She proposes that a new history can only begin when the old has been destroyed. Medea stops the creation of new humans, especially those who come from the corrupt blood of the colonizer Jason. The monstrosity of her act is an attempt to shake the world and force it to find new means for communication beyond the limiting language and structures that has depended upon.

ABOUT BOULOUKI THEATRE
Boulouki Theatre is a theatre troupe based in Montreal, Canada, that focuses on adaptations and devised work.
We are storytellers with a shared creative vocabulary that penetrates culture, gender, age and language – finding common ground where our differences meet. The body and the character, the space and the landscape of each story speak to one another, positioned and existing in a continuous spatial conversation.
Boulouki Theatre’s mission is to create theatre that explores social and political ideas through postdramatic storytelling. We create new stories and explore the truth of old stories, today. We examine issues so specific that they become universal, in the hope to fuel debate and exploration.
