Written originally by Euripides in 431BC, the tale of Medea is best known for its shocking act of filicide. Genre-defying new company Pecho Mama place the chilling tragedy in the maelstrom of a live synth gig with an all original soundtrack of contemporary Electronica and 80s-inspired Progressive Rock.  With the discovery of her husband's deceit and betrayal, Medea is driven to embark on a journey of savage revenge and destruction.

This is perhaps the most stunning and unique adaptation of the classic tale I have ever seen... A stunning kaleidoscopic journey into hell itself.

To put it simply, Medea Electronica is the kind of show I wish I saw more of. It's expertly crafted, performed to the highest standards, thematically fearless, smart as hell and cool as fuck. I can't recommend it enough.
