Polis and Panathenaia – Review by Virag Dombay

Written and directed by Georgia McKenzie, the work explored the narratives of five women of Greek Tragedies – Medea (Roxane Gardiner), Clytemnestra (Hannah Flannery), Phaedra (Grace Lofting), Medusa (Eli Free) and Antigone (Sereima Caldwell) through a modern feminist lens; telling their stories from their perspectives and not from that of a man’s.

The space was divided into each femme fatale’s quarters, with the attention to detail with each and every prop, dressing, light, and small touches reflecting the character’s story, personality, and internal struggles.
