Do you want to participate on a research performative project in Ancient Greek Choruses?

The aim is to create two choreographed dramatic choruses’ fragments from Sophocles’ Antigone (with Masks) and Euripides’ Bacchae (with stones as a prop held by the actresses which produces the rhythm) that will challenge the conventional boundaries between representation of the past and current embodiment. As an academic, former dancer and choreographer, coming from Athens-Greece, we will focus on issues related to space, meter, and movement elements, and elaborate together with the student’s manners to create the contemporary choreographed chorus fragments.

  • Place: Columbia Campus (exact location not known yet)
  • Rehearsal period: Friday evenings and Saturdays in October (a time convenient for all)  
  • Required: 5 Students from with acting and movement skills
  • Attached the text that needs to be memorized

If you want to participate, please contact: [email protected].

Thank you for your interest!
