    The duration of the Seminar is 8,5 hours and will develop in three topics. It will be given by Dr George Rodosthenous.
    1. Antigone in a wedding shop?
    Why do we use adaptation in Ancient Greek Drama? Which are the rules? How can we segregate the chorus in distinct separate entities? The Professor Dr George Rodosthenous will describe the process by which he adapted the Antigone text and how he envisioned the chorus as Wedding shop employees.   
    2. Contemporary approaches to Greek Tragedy
    Approaches to Greek Tragedy with a reference to the plays directed by Dr G. Rodosthenous: Agamemnon, Ajax, Alcestis, Helen, Hippolytus, Orestis and the Wife of Heracles.
    3. Composed Theatre
    There will be an exploration on how to “compose” a theatrical performance using musical structures. This seminar will focus on the director’s aesthetic and scenic decisions and how these were composed into the final narrative.
