Theatre Workshop

Theatre Workshop
Vassiliko Theatre – Substage, 08/10/2007

The Theatre Workshop of the National Theatre of Northern Greece began in October 2007 in order to study theatre texts under a theoretical and practical framework through various contemporary acting approaches. The main axis of inquiry in this research is the amalgamation of classical and contemporary plays. Attending the Theatre Workshop are young actors and drama school graduates, selected to enhance their theoretical and technical skills. The research involves three thematic cycles which promote the examination of various periods of dramaturgy and focus on the interaction between classical and contemporary texts in order to present different readings and approaches. Extreme paths are taken which shed light on the inquiry of each thematic cycle through a toilsome procedure of unending trials, in a continuous fluidity which reshapes people and notions. The presentations which aim to create the grounds for a continuous and fertile dialogue between the actors, director, teachers and the audience, are open to the public and last for approximately ten days
