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.

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.

Influence Definitely the session for you if you want to uncover why 2500 year old art is still relevant today, and how Ancient Greek Theatre shaped the Western way of thinking.

The story of David Walker’s
“Appeal to the Coloured Citizens of the World”
With Charles Angiama as David Walker
Witness this heart rending appeal by David Walker
to ‘the coloured citizens of the world, expressly those of the United Statrs of America. Hear the
eloquence of this self educated descendent of
slaves as he demands the immediate abolition of
slavery and condemns the death like apathy of the
people. His condemnation of the hypocrisy of
America ‘land of the free’. David Walker a man almost forgotten by history yet the inspiration
to future freedom fighters like Marcus Garvey,
W.E.B Dudois, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King.
Tickets £10.00 / Group concessions on request
