Khameleon Productions presents “Uprooting Medea” May 4, 2022 at 7:15 ZOOM
UK-based Khameleon Productions, led by Shivaike Shah, will introduce the first BIPOC translation and production of Euripides’ Medea, with discussion to follow. Khameleon’s Medea questions the pertinent topics of race, belonging and identity, themes already prevalent in Euripides’ original. The presentation will cover the development and adaptation of the work since the production’s original conception at Oxford in 2018, and explore the creative practice of elevating global-majority artists through multimedia forms including theater, film, music and poetry. Further, it will provide insight into the upcoming short film version of the project (to be released later in 2022); excerpts and behind-the-scenes footage will illuminate Khameleon’s vision for Medea.
