The Raft of the Medusa

Past Productions, Touring Programme
About This Project

The painting of The Raft of the Medusa by Théodore Géricault created controversy in 1819 by showing that no matter what the colour of our skin, we are all human. It was a protest painting against slavery and is used today to depict people and communities who have been abandoned by the state.

Fierce debate for applied students @CSSDLondon TIE with @theatreblahs this afternoon, powerful theatre and tough moral dilemmas marvellous!

Selina Busby, Course Leader MA Applied Theatre Central School of Speech and Drama, via Twitter 22nd October 2013.


As models in the artist’s studio, members of the audience are invited to become the characters in the painting and to voice the thoughts and opinions of those people trapped on the raft.

Raft of the Medusa began as a Company of Teachers model where four secondary school teachers devised and toured the show with the Blahs.
