A three week intensive workshop designed for individuals interested in
honing skills in playwriting and acting on the site where Western Theatre
was born. Participants will select their focus track for the workshop.
Both focus groups will work collaboratively to develop and stage original
work inspired by the Ancient Greeks. Writer’s Focus: Study and
practice of script analysis and development for the stage. Class will
involve readings and critique of student work. Actor’s Focus: Methods
of classical acting, character development, mask and movement and
vocal projection will be explored. Scenes and monologues from classical
plays and modern plays inspired by the classics will be presented along
with pieces generated in the Writer’s Focus group.
About The Athens Centre
The Athens Centre is an educational organization founded in 1969 to
sponsor academic and cultural activities in Greece. The Centre is
located in Mets, a residential area of central Athens, about 15 minutes
walk from the heart of the city at Syntagma (Constitution) Square. Mets
is well-served by public transportation by bus, metro, tram and trolley
from many areas of Athens, and is perhaps the greenest area of the
city, with parks nearby including the Zappeio and National Gardens,
Pangrati Park, and the woods around the old Olympic Stadium where
the first modern Olympics were held.
The Centre’s offices and classrooms are housed in neo-classical
buildings surrounded by a quiet garden courtyard. The view from the
roof terrace looks out to the Acropolis on one side, and down to the
sea on the other side. A computer facility features five computers and a
printer for students to use, and is wifi enabled in classrooms and
The Greek Theatre Workshop joins two other arts -based summer
programs at the Athens Center.
