MA Theatre Lab Production: Raft of the Medusa

MA Theatre Lab Production: Raft of the Medusa

In his shocking and controversial painting of 1819, Théodore Géricault captures the moment when the naked, starving and wretched survivors of shipwreck glimpse hope on the horizon.

After the frigate Medusa ran aground off the coast of North Africa, 147 people who were denied space on the life boats, were crowded onto a hastily constructed wooden raft and cut adrift. After 13 days at sea, without food or water and after enduring unimaginable suffering, 15 survivors were picked up by the ship Argus.

This is the starting point for a devised piece of text-based, physical theatre, which characterises the showcase productions of the MA Theatre Lab.
