"Ancient Greeks / Modern Lives" at the Grand Rapids Public Library
Date: April 18, 2012
On April 18, 2012, New York-based Aquila Theatre staged selected scenes from classical Greek poetry and drama at The Grand Rapids Public Library's Ryerson Auditorium in downtown Grand Rapids.
The program included selections from Homer's Odyssey, Aeschylus' Agamemnon, Sophocles' Ajax and Euripides' Herakles, under the theme "Stranger in a Strange Land: Encountering the Other."
Prof. Diane Rayor led a post-show discussion.
The performance was the culminating event in a series of community outreach activities organized by Prof. Rayor under the aegis of Ancient Greeks / Modern Lives: Poetry - Drama - Dialogue, a program funded by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
