Medeia is most recent creation of the João Garcia Miguel Company (Cia JGM) that marks the beginning of the company work in 2018. It will be on scene in Cineteatro Torres Vedres on April.

Medeia is an adaptation of Francisco Luís Parreira, of Euripides’ text and counts on the interpretation of Sara Ribeiro and David Pereira Bastos. Mário Laginha is the creator of live music. The play had an absolute premiere on February 22 at the Teatro Ibérico in Lisbon.

Medeia, daughter of the king of Colchis, falls in love with Jason, supports him in conquering the golden fleece, the father, saves him and flees with him to Greece. After years of marriage, Jason exchanges Medeia for Gláucia, daughter of Creon, king of Corinth. To protect Gláucia, Creon sends Medea and her children into exile.
