Medea’s Kinderen Milo Rau / NT Gent.

With Medea's Children, Milo Rau takes a new, in-depth look at the role of children in the theater. The starting point is a real criminal case: the case of a mother who, in total despair after a divorce, decides to kill her children and take her own life - but she survives. This modern tragedy is intertwined with the classic tragedy Medea , the most infamous case of relationship conflict and infanticide in Western literature

A group of children use this bloody crime case and perhaps the darkest origin story of European culture to reflect on themselves: about family history, first love and first encounters with death, about desires for the future and fears about the end of the world that haunts us all. How do children deal with their parents' divorce? With injustice, friendships that fail, the pressure at school? How do they deal with the radical power of Medea - with tragedy in general? The children, condemned to silence in classical tragedies, finally get to speak this time.

Medea's Children : the absurd and blood-soaked tragedies of adult life seen through the eyes of children.
