2016 – Present
Pecho Mama are a band and a theatre company. Their debut production, Medea Electronica, is a wild and imaginative retelling of the ancient Greek tragedy, set in the technological turbulence of 1980’s England.
With the discovery of her husband’s deceit and betrayal, Medea is driven to embark on a journey of savage revenge and destruction.
This intense drama plays out amidst an electrifying live gig; an all original mash up of contemporary Electronica and 80’s inspired progressive rock.
