The Clouds

1978-1979 National Theatre of Northern Greece
The Clouds - Aristophanes
Repeat: Theatro Dassous, 16/09/1978
Opening: Ancient Theatre of Philippi, Kavala, 22/07/1978

The Clouds is not a political satire but a satire of the new education and scientific methods that the sophistical teaching introduced in Athens. The chorus is consisted of clouds in the shape of women who advise Strepsiades, an uneducated villager to obtain an education in the tuition center of Socrates. The Clouds are the symbols of the changeable and vague thoughts of the great teacher, who, in this play, appears as a characteristic type of a Sophist. The play is more interesting for the ideas and the philosophic questioning of the characters and less for the comic brainwaves and their funny behavior.
