Project Ancient Tragedies/Modern Stages, Stanford University/Ecole normale superieure/Paul Valery in Montpellier

Principal Investigator:

Professor Eleni Papalexiou at the University of the Peloponnese and I are collaborating to develop a summer institute in the Argolid, "Ancient Tragedies/Modern Stages," exploring contemporary approaches to staging Greek tragedy. A combination of workshops, lectures, classes, and performances will provide participants with an up-to-date understanding of how our oldest theatrical form, Greek tragedy, continues to challenge contemporary theater artists and audiences in the 21st century.
