ATHENS AND EPIDAURUS FESTIVAL 2017

22 May to 19 August


The Athens & Epidaurus Festival, under the current artistic direction of Vangelis Theodoropoulos, aims to highlight the work of new Greek artists and promote it on an international level, while also achieving co-productions with internationally acclaimed artists and groups in the fields of theatre and dance, as well as with regional theatres and institutions in Greece, and expanding the Festival’s scope and audience by opening up to the city and organizing various educational activities.

Furthermore, in 2017 the Epidaurus Lyceum will also be launched; an international summer school of ancient Greek drama intended for drama school students and young actors from all over the world, the Lyceum aspires to a reappraisal of our approaches regarding ancient tragedy and comedy, helping bridge the gap between historic tradition and contemporary reality. The Lyceum is expected to become an international meeting point of actors, drama teachers, directors, musicians, choreographers, theatre theorists, anthropologists, and musicologists, as well as a source of spiritual and economic development for the entire Epidaurus area.
