Classic Tragedy presented by New Era University College, Department of Drama and Visuals
Femme Fatale: A Story of Love and Hate In a world filled with love, from ancient times to the modern world, the biggest harm one can bestowed upon is betrayal. When a third person appears in a marriage, family happiness also embarks on the road of destruction. The protagonist portrayed in the ancient Greek tragedy “MEDEA” is a femme fatale who was loved and hated by her husband. For more than two thousand years, this tragedy has continued happening to us, allowing this classic script to forever be praised upon. The 15th batch students of The Drama and Visuals Department of New Era University College have decided to adapt this script and change the time setting of the story from the ancient times to the Malacca dynasty, a woman who is extremely good at witchcraft falling in love with a warrior named Jasin. She abandoned her home and fled to a neighboring country with him. However, her husband betrayed her. What does love means to a woman? What makes a woman who experienced unfortunate marriage to turn into a murderer with a lust for revenge?
In order to show the audience traditional Malay cultures, we do have live performances for sound. We have invited Thong Yong How to be our director of audiography. We have also invited fashion designer Beatrice Looi to craft the costumes for the actors and inject strong local Malay tradition moods into the costumes. We have also invited Ng Eng Wei to be our dialect coach to strengthen the expression of the actor’s lines.
MEDEA is co-directed by Alice Tay, Koay Sye Jye and Tammy Yee. We are led by them for 3 months for preparation work of the production. They have let the students to analyze the script, conceive the idea of the entire design and hands-on production until the show complete. The Head of Department, Ho Shih Phin is responsible to adapt the script and also play a role as a consultant to the directors. Together, we are eager to recreate this eternal classic that transcends love and hate, as well as sin and responsibility. This performance is planned to represent New Era University College in Beijing, China in May next year to participate the 6th Asian Drama Academy College Student Drama Festival.
