MARCH THIRD THURSDAY
For March's Third Thursday event, we joined in conversation with Shivaike Shah about his "Uprooting Medea" Tour.
In 2018, as a student at Oxford, Shah produced an on campus production of Medea, the institution’s first entirely BIPOC production. Shah believes Medea is a powerful story about “questions of home, identity, belonging and broken promises.”
After graduation, he began to develop a short, non-narrative film about the character of Medea, co-written by Francesca Amewudah-Rivers.
During his talk, Shah reflected on how Khameleon Productions’ effort to make space for BIPOC individuals in theater is reflected in the theme of belonging within the story of Medea.
Khameleon’s adaptation of Medea is currently being reviewed by multiple film festivals and will be released to the public when it is selected by one of the festivals.
