This article offers a ‘preview’ of Fiona Templeton's work in progress, The Medead. It arises from my ‘access’ to her process and explores certain aspects of that work, but primarily sets out to explore the piece as a performative deconstruction of the myth of Medea, as articulated and disseminated through the play by Euripides. I examine the manner in which the piece foregrounds the operation of intertextuality to disrupt normative notions of time and space, and works on the boundaries between the linguistic and the material, so as to stage the ways in which stories can shape bodies and construct ‘realities’.
