"People always said I had a flair for dramatics. And I suppose that’s why dramas are written about me. That, and because I’m so exotic and different. "

Fall Prettier  by Therese Ramstedt

It is about Medea from Colchis. That says it all doesn’t it? Perhaps not. Written by Therese Ramstedt and performed by a versatile cast of five, Fall Prettier is about a person and her experience of the world rather than the myth about the woman who killed her children.

 

We are asking the question: who can really claim ownership of a woman’s story?

 

Fall Prettier is a wacky and glittery musical piece exploring the bravery, solidarity and resilience of women, told through a looking glass of mythology and appropriation. It is our first major collaboration, and merges our artistic languages to create a piece about Medea and Glauce, "the other woman", full of movement, song, humour, emotion and sparkles.
