MEDEA/WORN.

A short film

One of two short films specially commissioned by The Lowry as part of the #LoveLowry programme and was available to audiences online for free.

Medea / Worn is adapted by Emily Juniper, and Euripides’ original text is transformed into a striking dialogue between Medea and her singing wedding dress that emerges as both an emancipatory call and expression of resistance. In directing this Rachel reimagined and revitalised the solo show from their repertoire, originally performed in 2016 at New Diorama Theatre who co produced the film. 

This pair of short films mark Rachel's professional screen directing debut.
