"How far would we go for love? What would you be capable of in case of betrayal and repudiation?"

A day to say goodbye, a farewell for Medea to have everything she sacrificed her life taken away from her, her family and her homeland.

Medea by Andrés Lima is the most direct and honest text of tragedy to date, based on the texts of Seneca. It is true that today we prefer Roman rather than Greek. It is driven by the phrase from the classic "There is no greater pain than Love".  Medea makes us think about love and how destructive it can be. It is a story through the voice of a woman, of her inability to make a decision. Medea, the foreigner, is condemned to wander the Earth because she is useless to the kingdom; she is disowned out of fear; she is condemned in the same way that she condemned her destiny to follow in the footsteps of Jason, the person for whom she betrayed everything she loved except her unconditional love for him. Medea, yet another victim of romantic love, a woman who, for the first time in Greek tragedy, takes control of her own destiny. We are spectators and judges of this cruel murder and, in the end, it contrasts beauty and the darkest side of the human being".
