Rhodessa Jones presents "A Woman for the 21st Century - The Medea Project." In this unconventional talk/demonstration, Jones will read from performance material and her writings, perform short excerpts from her repertoire, and show video footage of her work in the American, South African and Italian prison systems. Jones addresses the use of theater as a “healing tool” through which we can begin to examine the conditions that powerfully affect our daily lives such as racism, sexism, homophobia, addictions and fear.
