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
