Medea the Feminist and Medea the Other in Modern Georgian Receptions
The receptions of Medea depicting her as the Other and as a feminist appear to be the main trends of her interpretation since the start of the 20th century. The article studies the Georgian receptions of Medea the Other and Medea the feminist in the context of these interpretative trends developed in her Western reworkings; namely, it focuses on three artistic productions: Medea: A World Apart, produced in 1997 by Tumanishvili Film Actors Theatre and based on Olga Taxidou’s two plays; Nino Kharatishvili’s 2007 play Mine and Your Heart (Medeia); and Madi Beriashvili’s 2013 Medea as Medea. The conclusions suggest useful insights concerning the similarities existing between Medea’s Western and Georgian interpretations as well as the novelties her Georgian receptions present.
