A FILM BY THE FACTION
MEDEA/WORN adapted by Emily Juniper from Euripides’ original text is here transformed into a striking dialogue between Medea and her wedding dress that emerges as both an emancipatory call and expression of resistance.
Starring Anna Maria Nabirye as both Medea and her Dress and directed by The Faction’s joint Artistic Director Rachel Valentine Smith.
The film was commissioned by The Lowry for the #LoveLowry programmer and produced by The Faction in association with New Diorama Theatre.
The film was made during the lockdown in early 2020.
Content warning: references in the text to suicide and infanticide.
