“It was fantastic, the actors showed incredible passion and knowledge”
Child In Ancient Greece
CONTENT: Pupils, in costume if possible, meet an Ancient Greek Couple. After being introduced to Life in Ancient Greece, they are divided into four groups to prepare Scenes from Everyday Greek Life:
1.Greek Life in the Home of a successful merchant, 2. Lessons in the Open Air, 3. Visiting the Agora: the Market, and finally 4. The Gymnasium where the children play their own games and practice their athletics.
Our actors then prepare three myths with their groups: Oedipus & the Sphinx, Odysseus & the Cyclops, and Theseus & the Minator. Finally everyone joins in a Greek dance. This is one of our most requested and popular workshops
