Euripides’ classic Medea is a blistering dialogue between Medea and her wedding dress that emerges as an emancipatory call and an expression of resistance as she contemplates the ultimate crime. Amelia Donkor and Rachel Valentine Smith transform Lorca’s 1922 lecture about art and the artist into a new invitation to laugh, to feel, to care a hundred years later. Duende is the Spanish word that encapsulates the passion, soul and integrity unique to creativity. Douglass. Statesman. Orator. Survivor of Slavery. Icon.
