Theatro Technis is proud to announce a new season of study exploring Greek Theatre. In these Masterclasses we will be getting to grips with the cradle of Western Theatre and look through time from the primitive tribes in pre-Athens Greece to the sophisticated Athenian Theatre. Socrates considered the highest kind of school.
Each Masterclass will be four hours long and are structured so you can just go to one or all six. They aren’t lectures - you will be exploring these issues practically, so bring some comfy shoes and clothes
13th June 14:00 till 18:00 £20
Origins Exploring theatre’s origins, this session is ideal for those new to the subject, or those wishing to compound their current knowledge with greater detail.
20th June 14:00 till 18:00 £20
Aeschylus Named The Father of Tragedy, we will be analysing the foundations of the original tear-jerker, through the first play performed of the Oedipus saga, Seven against Thebes.
11th July 14:00 till 18:00 £20
Sophocles Noted for putting a third actor on stage, Oedipus the King is probably the most well known Ancient Greek play today. If you have a soft spot for the Theban plays – this is the workshop for you.

Eurypides Considered the last of the three great tragedians, he transformed traditional Attic tragedy through the depiction of strong women and intelligent slaves.

Aristophanes Cited as the Prince of Ancient Comedy, like the satire of today, his plays were feared by the influential men of his time. His work is the only extant example of the genre Old Comedy.

The monologue Manoli…! is the story of a mother who lost her only son during the coup which took place in Cyprus at the15th of July 1974, just before the Turkish invasion. Years later she is still waiting for the trial and punishment of the killers. A dialogue-monologue with the only creature who is still listening to her, her cat. A dialogue with us? Or at the end just a monologue?
“Manoli…!” was produced in Cyprus and in other countries:
The play was also produced in Germany for radio broadcasting in Radio DDR 1988 and for WDR 1989. In 2000 in Ireland’s National Broadcaster
