The exhibition explores festivals in Greece, starting from the first attempts to stage ancient drama in the open-air to the establishment of Greek drama festivals and their development up to the present day. The materials on display view Greek festivals in the context of the larger European dialogues on the revival of antiquity, while also unfolding the performance reception of ancient drama in Greece against the backdrop of the country's cultural, ideological and political transformations in the twentieth century.

The exhibition is open to the public on Sat 4th May.
