“Socrates Now” in Colorado Springs


EllinikoTheatro offered 4 performance-discourses of Socrates Now at the University of Colorado and at Colorado College in Colorado Springs. The week-long program included master classes and workshops on justice, the law, ethics, politics, civic duty, and on the historical moment of Socrates’s trial; also on theatrical adaptation of classical texts and on the particulars of solo performance. Student and faculty participation was large, with vigorous dialogue and dynamic exchange of ideas.
