by Theodoraki, Anezina

Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this video documentary project is to introduce the theatres of Lato,Thorikos, and Makynia to the general public while providing scholarly comment on the importance of their role and contribution to the development of Greek drama in terms of staging and performing in smaller theatres. Seeing the Seeing Places marks a new direction in the history of Greek theatre by focusing on the sense of intimacy created in small theatres and performing spaces between the actors and the audience. It also gives rise to new dramaturgical considerations regarding the way ancient Greek tragedies were originally structured and performed in small spaces.
