GLOBAL SEMINAR OPPORTUNITY
Re:Staging the Greeks
June 10 – July 19, 2019
Through reading, performing, and theatergoing, students in this course will investigate the drama of ancient Athens as it was staged in its own time and, most particularly, as it is reimagined today. Students will attend performances at the internationally-acclaimed Athens and Epidaurus Festival, participating in workshops and conversations with actors, directors, and designers, before embarking on a final project featuring their own scene work. Students will also take classes in Modern Greek and visit sites related to the plays we’re reading, including the Theater of Dionysos in Athens, the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, and the Palace of Mycenae. Led by Senior Lecturer in Theater Michael Madden and Athens-based theater director/actress/singer Martha Frintzila.
