Connections 20046. The Greeks on Stage

The Greeks on Stage is a two-course connection that examines the history, style, techniques and acting of Greek tragedy. Analysis of the social and cultural contexts of drama makes students aware of the political tensions surrounding issues of class, religion, gender, sexuality and national identity. Combining the close reading of texts and the analysis of scripts with actual performance enhances student appreciation and understanding of the material.
