Greek Tragedy in Rehearsal

Share this blog to

Ancient Greek drama lay at the heart of Greek democracy. The remarkable characters and vigorous language of these plays encouraged citizens to wrestle with the issues they faced every day, from justice, faith, and war to gender, power, and leadership. We're going to explore how to unlock these great plays for our own time through exciting moment-to-moment discoveries in the rehearsal room.

Carey Perloff Panelist

We were delighted to join forces with the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) for our latest webinar: Greek Tragedy in Rehearsal, hosted last Thursday 11th August.

The exclusive online event saw a group of three dynamic theatre artists come together in a roundtable discussion to unpack how they'll be approaching and exploring the contemporary relevance of the ancient Greek tragedy Oedipus Tyrannus in their forthcoming workshop at Seattle Repertory Theatre.

Our fantastic panel included director, playwright, producer and educator Carey Perloff alongside multi-award-winning actors Dr Nike Imoru and John Douglas Thompson. Their fascinating discussion explored the rehearsal process for the forthcoming workshop, the complex themes present in the Oedipus Cycle, plus the panellists' experiences producing and performing Greek theatre.
