Event Details

Let the vase painters of ancient Greece take you behind the scenes of theatre from over two thousand years ago. The vases discussed capture enticing traces of the performance tradition which gave birth to Western theatre. But all is not as it seems, as far from offering a simple record, these paintings challenge their viewers to reflect on what theatre is. This talk explores the beginnings of the playful relationship between visual art and theatre.

 

Dr Rosie Wyles is Lecturer of Classical History and Literature at the University of Kent. Her research interests include: Greek and Roman performance arts, theatre costume, reception, and gender. She has published on, amongst others things, costume in Greek tragedy and the Pronomos vase. She is often involved with workshops in connection with theatre productions, including National Theatre's Medea, and has also contributed to two major BBC series on the ancient Greeks.
