Summer Greek Theatre / General Theatre & Drama Summer Courses:
"Acting to the Gods" - 2-week Intensive Summer Drama Course:
Set in Greece, where theatre originated 2,500 years ago, this course offers students a unique opportunity to learn about the ritualistic origins of theatre in its birthplace, to train, rehearse and perform in a Greek amphitheatre, and to attend a performance at the spectacular Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus.
The progam follows a daily schedule of six hours of classes, rehearsals and workshops led by experienced professional theatre directors. The first days of the course will focus on the background to theatre's Greek origins, plays and themes and contemporary theatrical influence and significance. Practical/hands-on classes intensify as the course progresses. The training methods taught are applicable and relevant to all forms of theatre. The course culminates with a public and filmed ("work-in progress") performance in the Hydrama amphitheatre. Optional field trips to Delphi and Athens are also offered as part of this program.
A maximum of 12 participants are selected for this course and we welcome a diversity of nationality, age and experience. It is suitable for theatre professionals, actors, teachers, classics or drama students. A Certificate of Participation is awarded on successful completion of the course.
