Inspire your students with a workshop that allows you to present a performance based on the ancient Tragedy mask and showing its importance to the Greek Drama.

The classical ‘helmet’ mask as depicted by archaeological evidence is considered by classicists as one of the defining conventions of Greek theatre and the image of the mask was also more than a functional device, it also had practical applications. It was also strongly connected to the quality of the texts and the deeply formalistic nature of ancient theatre.

Your students will have the chance to see replicas of ancient tragedy masks and to use them in order to practice their skills in ancient Greek drama performance.
