More Information on By, For, With: Greek Theatre: Introduction to Tragedy
What does tragedy mean to us now?
How has the staging and performing of Greek tragedy been transformed over the years?
Greek theatre practitioner, performer and drama teacher Nikoletta Thoma guides participants in developing tragic characters through the use of monologues, play and performance. Exploring tragedy through both the voice and body, participants will gain a deeper understanding of traditional Greek practices, as well as a range of transferable skills to apply to all kinds of theatre making.
An interactive workshop for performers, directors, and theatre makers of all kinds. This is a virtual event to be held over Zoom.
By, For, With is a series of workshops at Leeds Playhouse run by, for, and with local artists.
A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.Audio Described
