Overview

From a young encounter to a tragic climax
“Medea/Jason” is a new stage play based on numerous “Medea” traditions.

In March 2024, Setagaya Public Theater will perform the new work “Medea/Jason” by scriptwriter Satsuko Fujino and director Shintaro Mori.
Medea is the masterpiece of Greek tragedy written by the ancient Greek playwright Euripides.The gruesome revenge story of Princess Medea, who kills her own child due to her husband Jason's betrayal, has been the subject of numerous stage plays and films around the world.
This work, “Medea/Jason,” does not focus on this famous revenge drama from beginning to end, but vividly illuminates the prequel, the meeting and love-filled days of the two young people, and depicts a man who exists like the sun. The film depicts the story of why two people met such a tragic end through the perspectives of their three children.

 

Hero Jason: Yoshio Inoue, Princess Medea: Nao Minamisawa, and other charming elites such as Hiroki Miura have gathered.
Birth of a new Greek tragedy

In this production, only five actors embody the epic Greek tragedy on stage.These five elite members have assembled the best cast that director Shintaro Mori could have hoped for.

Who plays the role of Jason, one of the title roles?Yoshio Inoueis.He made a spectacular debut in a musical, and since then has expanded his activities not only to the stage of popular musicals, but also to straight plays and video works, always placing himself in the world of many productions as a front-line actor, and achieving a unique reputation. We have built a rare presence.However, surprisingly, this work is the first to embody the world of Greek tragedy.All eyes are on how she will develop the role of her husband Jason, who transforms the loving princess Medea into a woman consumed by hatred.Please stay tuned.

The other title role, Princess Medea, will be played byNao MinamisawaWe will welcome you.Although he has a rich career in stage and film, Minamisawa is an avid reader and writes numerous book reviews and writes his own serials.In addition to her pure acting ability, she also takes advantage of her sharply honed analytical skills and literary sense, and is sure to bring out a new side of her in the role of Medea, the heroic heroine even in a Greek tragedy. there is no.

The three children born to Jason and Medea are played byHiroki Miura, Takai Mizuno, Chisato Kamo.

She has achieved excellent results in multiple ballet competitions, and has taken on many stage performances while showing promise as a ballet dancer. Now, she has both acting and singing skills, and her stage appearance with all the triple beats is the talk of the town.Hiroki MiuraHowever, it will be interesting to see what kind of chemical reaction they will have under Shintaro Mori's direction as they meet for the first time.

Takai Mizuno is Shintaro MoriHe has appeared in the productions of “Parade”, “The Miracle Worker”, and “The Monster and the Clock”, and is one of the indispensable actors in Mori's works.
Chisato KamoWhen he was involved in Mori's productions as a swing (understudy), Mori highly praised his talent, which led to him appearing in this project.Expectations are also high for the performances of Mizuno and Kamo, who have earned Mori's trust.

Coincidentally, this will be the first time for these five cast members to appear in a production planned by Setagaya Public Theater.The Greek tragedy Medea/Jason is portrayed from a new perspective by this wonderful cast and a talented staff that Mori has deep trust in.Please look forward to this work, which will be the culmination of the theater's 2023 theatrical performances.

 

Satsuko Fujino and Shintaro Mori reconstruct Greek tragedy based on numerous "medea traditions"

The script will be written by a writer from Monaca Kogyo, which is sponsored by Shintaro Mori.Satsuko Fujino.Fujino focuses on the many legends of Medea, and tells the story of how Medea and Jason, who were born in a foreign land, meet in their teens, just like Romeo and Juliet, and overcome numerous obstacles to achieve love. By placing it in the first half, we created a structure that makes the revenge story in the second half stand out even more.

be in charge of directingShintaro MoriAs you know, has always been at the top of the theater scene, and has previously performed in performances hosted by Setagaya Public Theater such as “Harvest” (2012), “THE BIG FELLAH” (2014), and “Management. People” (2017), “The Silver Tassie” (2018), “Mary Stuart” (2020), Setagaya Public Theater x Tokyo Globe Theater “THE ELEPHANT MAN” (2020), and many more. We have created popular works.Expectations are high to see how Mori, who has created numerous dramatic theater spaces, will produce the magnificent mythological world unique to Greek tragedy, encompassing both fantastical elements and comedic episodes.

The script is written by Satsuko Fujino, who has collaborated with many others to create numerous plays, and the direction is directed by Shintaro Mori, as well as a cast of five elite performers.How is the birth and collapse of a family of a couple and their children depicted within the larger framework of historical background and national system?Please look forward to “Medea/Jason,'' which is rich in joy, anger, and sadness, and is both intimate and grand.

Performer comments

Yoshio Inoue

A story from Greek mythology that is probably one of the oldest theatrical themes.When I read it again, I was surprised to learn that the fundamentals of humanity remain the same, and that the emotions such as human weakness and cunning, and the joy and pain that arise from this, are universal and realistic across time and space. .
The character Iason that I play is very human, and he has weaknesses and flaws as well.It's a challenge for me as an actor to play a negative side, so I'm looking forward to it.Nao Minamisawa, who plays Media, has a soft impression, so I'm looking forward to seeing how Minamisawa transforms towards the latter half of the tragedy, and that it will be an interesting creative journey. .
Shintaro Mori is a director who uses a variety of approaches to create a wide range of theatrical works and shocks the theater world.What kind of world will we create this time? What kind of experiences will we have? I'm looking forward to it in a scary way.

Nao Minamisawa

Medea has a strong image of being a gruesome revenge story, but “Medea/Jason” will not only include that, but also various episodes such as love and adventures with Iason, so we who live in modern times will also I think we can build a media image that people can empathize with.On the other hand, it's a role that reflects emotions that I've never played before, so I'm a little scared that I'll see a side of myself that I don't even know about, but I'm also full of expectations for the big challenge.
This will be my second time appearing in a production directed by Shintaro Mori.I am determined to arrive at the rehearsal room earlier than anyone else to formulate a plan, respond to the direction of Mr. Mori, who has a greater passion for theater than anyone else, and even exceed expectations.
I think I'll be interacting most closely with Yoshio Inoue, who plays Iason, so I want to feel free to clash with him.I would like to put my heart and soul into creating this work with Mr. Mori and all of my co-stars, who are highly skilled actors and have a wealth of stage experience.

Hiroki Miura

As a stage performer, I have always wanted to try my hand at the world of Greek tragedy.This time, it's a masterpiece that represents the world of Medea and Jason, and I'm incredibly excited to have it come true with Shintaro Mori's direction.
How can the epic world of Greek tragedy be performed with only five performers?I have heard that I am also planning to play multiple roles, so it looks like it will be an unpredictable stage experience that I have never experienced before. With the enthusiasm of “I'll do anything!'' I feel like I'm going to step out into the world without fear, boarding a boat with Mr. Mori and my co-stars.
It's my first time, so what will happen?However, I believe in what I have done so far and hope to absorb various things from Mr. Mori, Mr.Inoue, Ms.Minamizawa, and other co-stars, and expand my range as an actor. I am thinking.

Takai Mizuno

When I was in junior high school, I appeared in a musical based on Greek mythology, and since then I have been exposed to various stories.The characters in myths are somehow unconventional and have an image that lacks reality.However, in “Medea/Jason”, I hear that he will create a character with a human touch, so I am really looking forward to it, as I think it will be a touching Greek tragedy that the audience will be able to empathize with.
Mr. Mori's direction is filled with love and passion for actors and theater, and I personally play a variety of roles in addition to medea and Jason's child, so I need to be prepared to take on the challenge with energy, stamina, and concentration. I think it is.However, I love Mr. Mori's rehearsal space, and I would like to do my best to show you a new Greek tragedy that has never been seen before.

Chisato Kamo

I have been to Setagaya Public Theatre many times since I started acting.This is a theater where you can feel the sense of unity between the stage and the audience seats, and the feel of the actors.Although I was a mixture of anxiety and anticipation at the unknown experience of performing a Greek tragedy with a wide variety of characters with five cast members, I hope to be able to convey the same level of enthusiasm that I have felt in the audience seats. I am.
In Mr. Mori's practice studios that I have attended so far, there were cute props all over the place.I secretly think that Mr. Mori actually has a cute side to herself as she handles props like this.On the other hand, he is a person who creates rigorous, detailed, and realistic productions, and I hope everyone will be looking forward to seeing what the stage will be like.
