This one-day workshop on “Reconstructing & Adapting Fragmentary Ancient Greek Tragedy”, organised by Andriana Domouzi, will be the first of its kind and will look at the Methodologies & Challenges for Theatre Practitioners and Classicists bringing to life the lost Greek plays.
Experts from Classics, English and Drama as well as playwrights and theatremakers will discuss their own take on the lost plays, producing an engaging and informative workshop addressed at colleagues, students, theatre artists and members of the public interested in the undiscovered plays of Greek civilisation.
The speakers will explore past and current trends in the reconstruction of lost Greek tragedies and will look at the creative and interdisciplinary potential of reimagining these plays. Each of them will showcase their methodology on the plays they chose to reconstruct and the benefits and practicalities of their approach.
Location: The event will be hosted by the Centre for the Reception of Greece and Rome of the Department of Classics at Royal Holloway, University of London. It is generously funded by the Classical Association and co-sponsored by the theatre company Cyborphic.
The speakers include Timberlake Wertenbaker, Adam Roberts and Colin Teevan.
