HSA Theatre Alliance Presents: Medea
The Harlem School of Arts Theatre Department is launching an original production of Medea, adapted, directed and designed by Artistic Director Alfred Preisser. This production is based on Euripides Medea, the most famous revenge tragedy in the classical Greek canon. HSA's modernist interpretation fuses the spirit of the ancient play with a contemporary awareness of the plight of women living in dangerously sexist societies today. This not-to-be-missed production will feature the professional debut of student actors from HSA's Young Theatre Alliance Company, alongside professional actors from our facultyactors Khalil Kain and Tracy Johnson are featured in the lead roles of Jason and Medea- for an evening of provoking drama, chanting and dance.
