For the second year the Salesian Pontifical University (UPS) in Rome, faces the commitment to stage a Greek tragedy. After the project realized in 2017 with Sofocle’s Antigone, it is the turn of the Persians by Aeschylus.
The staging is the result of a theater workshop promoted by the Faculty of Classical Christian Letters under the guidance of prof. Roberto Fusco and Paola Sarcina, in collaboration with the cultural association Music Theater International. Students and instructors from different UPS faculties, plus external collaborators, theater enthusiasts and entertainment professionals attended the workshop.
The representation is therefore the result of an integrated laboratory, where the rewriting of the text, the choice of the setting and the acting solutions, is the result of a shared work between students, teachers and theater professionals.
For this second edition of the project it was decided to offer to the Roman schools the opportunity to attend one of the two performances scheduled for May at the University Auditorium Theater on May 16 at 11.30.
High school students and accompanying teachers will be able to interact at the end of the performance with the students of the University and their teachers, to reflect together on the issues touched by the tragedy and on the solutions applied to this staging.
Mythos 3.0 – Reading and workshops on contemporary rewriting of classical myths for classical and scientific high schools, teacher training colleges. Three pairs of myths (Achilles / Elena, Eco / Narciso, Era/ Kronos). Project available on request for the school year 2016/2017.
