Maori Bacchae

The Maori Bacchae Project

Our visit and work last year at Unitec University of Auckland in New Zealand caused the birth of a most exciting concept: the development of the program MAORI BACCHAE, an experimental performance of Euripides’ Bacchae through traditional and theatrical rituals of Maori and Samoan, and a mixture of ancient Greek, English and Maori in cooperation with PACIFICA body and Greek and New Zealand governmental and non- institutions and organizations. In May 2015, Yannis Simonides visits New Zealand to work with Maori and Samoan actors and students.

In the following weeks will have more information and audiovisual material!
