Our Classics: Ancient Myth in the Community

With a methodology developed by its Director, Rhodessa Jones, the Medea Project draws on Classical myths to ground the theatrical performances of women's personal experiences of trauma, incarceration, and illness for healing purposes. Focus will be on the Medea Project's most recent show, When Did Your Hands Become a Weapon, and its engagement with Euripides' Trojan Women.
