Medea, directed by D’Ambrosi, combines professional actors, who perform in English, with a chorus of 14 actors with diverse abilities (including epilepsy, neurological disabilities, and down syndrome) from the University program of D'Ambrosi's Rome-based "Magic of Theatre" Drama Academy, who perform in Attic Greek. “La magia del teatro” (The magic of Theatre), the Drama Academy for differently abled children directed by Dario D’ambrosi, is a school that stimulates the students’ creative freedom by giving them the theoretical and practical means to help them express themselves on the stage.
Dario D'Ambrosi, one of Italy's most distinguished theatre artists, has made a career of productions about people with psychiatric disabilities, devising productions that portray their unique perspective on life. His stunning and visceral version of Euripides' tragedy debuted at La MaMa in 2011. In 2012, it was presented at Wilton's Music Hall in London and was awarded the Wilton Prize as Best Show of the Season. It has also been awarded the "Lupa Capitolina" Award in Rome, a Mayoral honour.
