Description: The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents the performance "MEDEA on Media" by the Seongbukdong Beedoolkee Theatre on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 and Thursday, November 9, 2023 starting at 7:30 PM both nights.

This Seoul, Korea-based innovative contemporary theatre company delivers a completely original take on the enduring Greek tragedy of Medea, recasting the ancient tale as a commentary on contemporary media and serving it to the audience in outrageous ways, including talk shows, action movies, Disney cartoons, and an Instagrammable yoga class. With plenty of physicality and a dash of silliness, MEDEA on Media is also clever and profound. The work is performed in Korean with English supertitles.

Led by director Kim Hyun-tak, Seongbukdong Beedoolkee Theatre freely deconstructs the texts of both well-known masterpieces and modern Korean dramas to recreate them, incorporating contemporary social issues. Often, Kim’s performances use a different theatrical style depending on the material and topic, such as dance theatre, melodramatic film, or physical theatre, and most of them include active audience participation.

General admission tickets are $30.00 and tickets for Virginia Tech student tickets with ID and youth ages 18 & under are $10.00 each.
