What Stage for the Classics? - Bringing Reception and Performance into the Contemporary World

What stage for the Classics? 

3rd - 4th October 2013

Centre for Classical Studies, Faculty of Letters, University of Lisbon


Over the centuries the classical texts have been performed time after time, showing an incredible capacity to adapt to the most different contexts, cultures and media. This workshop intents to be a space for reflection on what is the role of Classical texts in our age. More than a simple theoretical approach, the aim is to promote the dialogue between theory and practice, joining together the leading voices of classical performance research and the voices of those who performed or directed the performance of classical texts. This workshop will join researchers from the APGRD (Oxford University), a pioneer in classical performance reception, and the University of Lisbon, as well as leading names in Portuguese Theatre and Cinema with the aim of bringing that expertise framework into Portuguese performance practice.
