CARNIVAL MEDEA NEWS:

ABOUT THE CARNIVAL MEDEA: A Bacchanal Scotland

CARNIVAL MEDEA: A Bacchanal is an adaptation of the Euripides tragedy written by award winning playwright, Dr. Shirlene Holmes and international performing artist Rhoma Spencer. Since 2003, GSU’s Communication Department has supported the development of the production and in 2014 the show was performed twice at the University. Now the show will be presented at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest fringe festival in the world. This will be the first time Georgia State University presents a theatrical production at the festival.

CARNIVAL MEDEA is adapted from the Euripides tragedy by Shirlene Holmes and Rhoma Spencer. In this retelling of the Classic Greek drama, Holmes and Spencer set the ancient myth of a woman scorned in the carnival tradition of Trinidad. The carnival archetypes are brought to life in the characters of the play, creating an exploration of a woman who must balance the Orisha’s warning her head or unleash terrible violence on those around her. Featuring music and dance by Trinidadian choreographer Natalie Settle– Joseph, Carnival Medea interprets an old story through the African diaspora and the multicultural heart of the Caribbean, Trinidad

ABOUT THE EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL 


ICTF is an opportunity for collegiate performing arts programs to provide the opportunity for study abroad while showcasing their productions on the world stage of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 1947, the Edinburgh International Festival was formed as an event to promote peace and unity in the world after World War II. Eight uninvited theatre companies, traveled to the Festival and participated on its ‘fringes’. These companies attracted so much attention and enthusiasm that a new festival was born, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe! Today, with over 3,000 productions, 40,000 performances and thousands of performers from across the globe, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest performance arts festival in the world! Click here to visit the website for more information! 

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!!

Georgia State University plans to take twenty-one students and production assistants to the ICTF festival. Each student who performs or works on the production is required to raise up to $5,800 to attend the International Collegiate Theatre Festival in August 2015. Money raised will cover each participant’s festival fees, air fare, ground transportation, accommodations, and emergency funds while in Scotland. Your generous contribution would allow a student to be one step closer to becoming a participant and being a part of a major cultural experience.
