Resident Director Max Truax returns to Trap Door to direct another Heiner Müller piece, after his triumphant production of Hamletmachine, which “calculated chaos and mastered madness with purpose, conviction, theatrical artistry, and artistic integrity.” Medea Material explores the story of Euridepes’ Medea and its surrounding mythology, and will engage Müller’s poetry and complex intersectionality in a dancetheatre spectacle.
