“The Loves of Achilles” at the Epigraphic Μuseum
Tositsa 1, Athens
27 - 28 May 2022
The play The Loves of Achilles uses parts of textual material from earlier sources in combination with new original text, which emerged after the dramatic treatment of the myths and stories related to Achilles’ love life. The original text was written by the author Christina Karavezyris, while the dramaturgical treatment of the material and the translations were done by her in collaboration with the director of the performance Menelaos Karantzas.
The protagonist in the performance is a Chorus, through which Achilles and the persons who were his lovers and mistresses emerge. The performance is presented at the Epigraphic Museum in a dialogue with the specific archaeological finds of the museum, which are fragments of texts, but also the raw material of the play The Eros of Achilles.
Co-organized with the Foundation ” Educational and Research Centre for Culture”.
