April 10 - 13, 2017
Commenting on a recent staging of Sophocles’ Antigone in Melbourne, Australian playwright Christine Lambrianidis claimed that “Greek tragedy remains the most modern form of drama [because] it is unafraid to question everything we value”. This panel will look at the continual appeal of Greek tragedy beyond the Mediterranean countries, focusing on modern stagings and adaptations throughout the world. Papers are invited that discuss the use of Greek tragedy in fiction, comic books, theatre, opera, television and cinema beyond the Southern European area, and explore the motivation for the use of the classics for audiences that may not be familiar with them.
