A MULTIDISCIPLINARY PROJECT WITH ORIGINAL ART WORKS
PHOTOGRAPHY VIDEOS AND LIVE MUSIC
What role can we play in a revolution?
I imagined a few years ago a contemporary interpretation of the myth of Medea based on four different female personalities: primitive, magic, rebel, passionate. I didn’t have a child at the time. I let this idea grow, and I made pieces around romantic relationships. Today I have a seven year old child, it’s time to come back to Medea.
This is where the plural title emerges from: Medea’s visions. Several independent interpretations coexist around a common theme. It is imperative for me to have male perspectives on this feminine duality.
Thanks to magic artistic encounters and thanks to actors and producers helping us , this project became reality
(Alessia Siniscalchi )
It is a question of putting on stage (and even off stage because the place is always an adaptable factor ) the following themes: identity, gender, family, Bible and more generally religion and law. Oppositions and opposites. Theater and peformance
We are in plural universe in collaboration with:
The artist Valerio Berruti (recently exposed at the Biennale de Venise)
The writing of Paulina Mikol Spiechowicz (notably published with Baldini e Castoldi)
The installations by the Russian artist Anja Martchenko
The actors of Kulturscio’k live art collective, a total of 5 actors.
The visions videos by Piero Viven and photography by Luca Florino and Giovanni Ambrosio/Black Spring Graphics Studio
The music of Cristina Barzi and Phil St George.
A photographic performance is linked to the project

The first video / vision is a reflection on the reason why Medea refuses her children. Medea dreams his/her man with another woman and decides to lose the baby that she is going to have. When Jason leaves the house because he wants to be with a younger woman,
Medea has a dream/VISION: she is pregnant and wants to have an abortion but three women (representing law and religion) try to persuade her not to do it. Medea melts past and present visioning him with the younger woman and identifying herself to her.
