Course content

When we refer to ancient Greek theatre, (comedy and drama) as ‘classical’, we tend to use this term in order to denote ancient Greek theatre’s power to never stop producing reactions to people that are watching these theatrical plays and to people that still feel mentally excited when they read them.

This online course is designed carefully, so that the language and the means used efficiently provide knowledge to anyone interested in ancient Greek theatre.

The participant will have the chance to meet the giants of human civilization through a dialogue with Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides accompanied by a presentation of their theatrical plays along with the importance of the Greek tragedy, a form of writing that had the ability to stare at the abyss of the human soul.

Let us think about a paradox: ancient Greek theatre is not so ancient and not so Greek.

It has the power to give us meaningful interpretations of our current reality and does not refer only to Greeks but concerns any given human being on earth.

All of the above will be analyzed further and in detail in this online course, part of the Arts and Culture category.

After successfully completing the lessons, the participant will receive a training certificate while acquiring a magnificent one time experience
