The Intensive course on the Study and Practice of Ancient Greek Drama is a two-week inter-disciplinary course related to the plays produced in the Ancient Theatre of Epidauros during the time.

This is an annual project , taking place in Epidauros, organised by the European Network of Research and Documentation of Performances of Ancient Greek Drama for graduate students in Theatre Studies and Classics departments. The course, which consists of the theoretical sessions by professors of European universities and workshops by artists related to the productions of Ancient Greek Drama, aims to bring together scholars and students from different disciplines and different countries, in order to exchange knowledge on this subject.

During the 2 first weeks of July the course concentrates on the plays performed at the ancient theatre in the framework of the Hellenic Festival. The students have the opportunity to watch the performances and many times rehearsals and come in contact with the contributors of the performances.

The Intensive Course on the Study and the Performance of Ancient Greek Drama of the European Network of Research and Documentation of Performances of Ancient Drama had been selected as a ‘case study’ and an ‘example of good practice’ by the European League of Institutes of the Arts (E.L.I.A.) among other educational programmes across Europe.
