Radical Theatre Greek Tragedy in the Modern World

Synopsis

Radical Theatre Greek Tragedy in the Modern World by Rush Rehm

Why should Greek tragedy matter now? This book opens a dialogue between the tragic theatre in ancient Athens and the multiple performances of the modern world. In five interconnected chapters, Rush Rehm engages tragedy on its own terms, using our oldest theatre as inspiration for how we might shape the theatre of the future. Part analysis, part polemic, this book engages the aesthetic, political and ethical challenges of Greek tragedy as a means of confronting what tomorrow's theatre can do.

Rush Rehm is Associate Professor of Drama and Classics at Stanford University, USA; his publications include The Play of Space: Spatial Transformation in Greek Tragedy.
