What a young person thinks that is important to learn and what an old person thinks that a younger one should know. This workshop tries to identify what is fair or unfair, what is necessary and what is not, what is conservative and what is progressive, how the educational system works, how important it is to develop our skills, our decernment, our critical ability and our social emancipation in order to intergrate efficiently in the future society.
 
This experiential masterclass is addressed to teachers, actors, theatre specialists, students and to anyone interested in active citizenship. The main purpose of the masterclass is to examine a philosophical, political and educational issue, with the help of Aristophanes’ humour.    
  

Speakers:
Georgina Kakoudaki (Theatre Specialist, Director, Consultant for the Educational Programmes of the Athens and Epidaurus Festival)

“One rock with two peaks”: A spatial interpretation of Sophocles’ “Antigone”
Amalia Papastergiou, Konstantina Giannoulaki (graduates of the School of Architecture, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki)

The building is designed in a way so the users, according to the choices they make while moving through it, will identify themselves with one of the heroes of Sophocles’ tragedy “Antigone” on a psychological, emotional, social and political level.
 
The space becomes personal as it encourages consciousness to appear. The emotional state of each user/hero shows itself on the walls, on the floors and on the ceiling of each room. Every user will have a unique experience according to his/her own point of view and personal choice. It is all up to where they choose to turn, and how far the will go for the experience to happen.
 
The ultimate goal of the spatial interpretation of the tragedy of Antigone is to investigate the way architecture interacts with the users, and in this different mindset to look at our surroundings in a more critical way, in order to claim, as citizens, our own, democratic, public space.
