Heroes of the Past & Present
Sat. 25 March 2017, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT
The Hellenic Museum is excited to present in association with Thespis, ‘Heroes of the Past & Present’, a theatrical collage of moments in Ancient Greek Tragedy eerily paralleled with events in our time. This is an evocative exploration of heroism and courage over time delving into our past to reflect upon the present . Exploring key moments in Greek Tragedy, this production highlights the striking reality of how art and life come together and promotes an affirmative view of disability through the arts.
Director Stathis Grapsas’ work has stretched across continents, and gives a powerful voice to marginalised groups in society who are often left unheard. Innovative and moving, this is a show not to be missed.
