1st Mikro Festival of Ancient Drama

Metrita, The Grief of Pentheas, theatre group MITOS
Elena Agathokleous, Lukasz Walewski, Demetris Spyrou

The performance is in the frame of theatrical research from Elena Agathokleous and Lukasz Walewski on ancient texts and their performativity.
It is based on the music parts of Euripide’s Bakhes in ancient greek, with small episodes in greek. The synthesis of the body’s movement comes from the ancient icon painting. The text just gives the motive. What remains is the singing of the small chorus, which gives live to the memory of a fait accompli, for someone called Pentheas and his rage.
