Description: A long durational performance in which the performer engages with the viewer in a symbiotic relationship that results in the artists' impulsive selection of a tract of text from Seneca’s Medea. Various monologues are repeated in ever-changing scenarios illuminating the depth of one of Medea’s subtler plights: to be a stranger in a strange land.
