Contemporary Adaptations of Greek Tragedy

Auteurship and Directorial Visions

Contemporary Adaptations of Greek Tragedy: Auteurship and the Director's Vision provides a wide-ranging analysis of the role of the director in shaping adaptations for the stage today. Through its focus on a wide range of international productions by Katie Mitchell, Theodoros Terzopoulos, Peter Sellars, Rimini Protokol, Jan Fabre, Robert Wilson, Tadashi Suzuki, Yukio Ninagawa, Ariane Mnouchkine, Peter Stein, Dimitris Papaioannou, Wole Soyinka and Richard Schechner, among others, it offers readers a detailed study of the ways directors have responded to the original texts, refashioning them for different audiences, contexts and purposes. As such the volume will appeal to readers of theatre and performance studies, classics and adaptation studies, directors and theatre practitioners, and anyone who's ever wondered 'why they did it like that' when watching a stage production of an ancient Greek play.
