'Nu är jag Medea': Khadija El Kharraz Alami in Sweden!
Khadija El Kharraz Alami started the tour of ‘Nu ben ik Medea’ in Sweden. In 2018, she won awards with her performance at Theater Aan Zee. Her personal retelling of Euripides’ tragedy has not escaped Riksteatern in Sweden either. Khadija is touring the Swedish country with the English-language version, ‘Nu är jag Medea’. This weekend, she performed at Sara Kulturhus!
‘Nu ben ik Medea’ is a personal retelling of Euripides’ tragedy, interweaving the story ofMedea with her own experiences of growing up between two worlds — and about the clash of forces within yourself. Alami explains how she has been shaped by the riches from the Western and Moroccan worlds: the many traditions, differences in culture, multilingualism, believing or not believing, music, food, freedom… Until these riches collide: she stands between them and tries with all her strength to hold onto both. So she grows up further, no longer with, but between two worlds.
