An intimate and timid oratorio who’s not scared neither of bluntness or transgression
For Medea, the magician, the matricide, the passionate lover rejected by Jason, the barbarian fascinated by western Corinth, Jean-René Lemoine created a furious intimate odyssey. Alone on stage, in front of a microphone, bare shouldered, he totally feels at one with this radiant and transgressive Medea. He provided her with a crystal clear language. She comes from the ancient shorelines of Colchis; he brings her in front of us. This muffled tender piece, made both of fire and ice, mirrors some secret filiations.
