Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change.

In an era defined by micro-narratives, how does one tackle the Epidaurus grand narrative? What does the Epidaurus Festival stand for in a rich history spanning 65 years? How would we like the Festival to face up to the challenges of the 21st century? Should we preserve or revise its philosophy and identity, and up to which point? If we opt for revision, are there any limits to it? Who should set these limits and under what rationale?

These are only a few of the questions that the word ‘Epidaurus’ poses to theatre professionals; questions which remain largely unanswered, even though they have been baffling us for years. This year’s symposium, held for the fourth consecutive year in collaboration with the Hellenic Association of Theatre and Performing Arts Critics, will tackle these hotly debated issues, featuring guest lecturers from the entire range of performing arts, in order to cover all the aspects of a complex issue that has not just artistic but also ideological, financial and even national implications.

Symposium hours: 17:00-20:30

As part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2020. In collaboration with the Hellenic Association of Theatre and Performing Arts Critics.
