Re:Staging the Greeks
Michael Cadden, senior lecturer in theater in the Lewis Center for the Arts
Martha Frintzila, Athens-based theater director, actress, and singer
June 10 - July 19, 2019

Though the plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes occupy a mythical place in Western culture as the foundations of theater, they are first and
foremost plays meant to be performed and observed. They arose from a particular context and were performed at particular times of the year in particular places. Some
of these venues remain today for study and performance.

Contemporary Athenians see an unbroken connection between the ancient world and their complex multicultural present; this seminar will explore those connections through visits to ancient sites such as Delphi and Mycenae, as well as to the streets, churches, and theaters of the modern city.

The seminar will also focus on contemporary Greek and international theater practice through the annual Athens and Epidauros Festival, which invites companies from
around the world, as well as the leading theater artists of Greece, to present classic and contemporary material in the places where theater began.

The festival will offer students an immersion in the vibrant, chaotic, contradictory, very old, and very new world of Greek theater through performances, workshops, and conversations with actors, directors, and designers.

This seminar fulfills the literature and the arts general education (LA) requirement. “Re:Staging the Greeks” is cosponsored by the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies and the Lewis Center for the Arts.

Program Fee: Global Seminars range in price from $6,000-8,000. PIIRS provides generous funding to students admitted to the Global Seminars who receive term financial aid.
