ΓΙΑΝΝΗΣ ΖΗΚΟΥΔΗΣ: Άξιον Εστί

Σκοπός της εργασίας αυτής είναι η προσέγγιση του Άξιον Εστί με ερευνητικό εργαλείο το ηρωοκεντρικό μοντέλο αφηγηματικής ανάλυσης που ανέδειξε η μακρά παράδοση συστηματικής ανάλυσης λογοτεχνικών έργων η οποία ξεκίνησε με τη μελέτη της δομής των ρωσικών παραμυθιών από τους Ρώσους φορμαλιστές στις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα και πέρασε αργότερα στους στρουκτουραλιστές και σημειολόγους θεωρητικούς της λογοτεχνίας.

ἐξ ἐρίων δὴ καὶ κλωστήρων καὶ ἀτράκτων

This essay examines that metaphor in the context of the political and war situation at the time Lysistrata was first performed. It considers traditional gender roles in the fifth-century Greek polis and Lysistrata’s inversion of those roles in her weaving analogy. Aristophanes’ comedic purpose in the weaving speech, in Lysistrata as a whole, and more generally across his corpus is examined. In addition, some observations are made about the sound pattern of Lysistrata’s speech and, in a personal argument, a speculative suggestion is advanced that the audience might have associated her cadences with the familiar rhythms of a domestic weaving loom.

Examine the role of self-deception in the historical poems of Cavafy

This is a heartfelt yet rigorous and intelligent essay submitted by Sophie Prewett for the course I teach to 3rd year undergraduate Classics students at the University of Reading where I have been teaching for the last thirteen years. My course bears the title 'My Mother's sin and other stories' aiming at introducing some major authors and works as well as trends in Modern Greek Poetry and Fiction from the late 19th century to the late 20th century in connection with both the history, sociocultural context and wider literary developments of their period and illustrating attitudes to the ancient past in the work of some selected poets and novelists. All texts are taught from English translations. My students take this course as optional and for the majority a whole new world of hidden Modern Greek treasures is unveiled. Many have called the experience of my course as 'a breath of fresh air' which i consider an ultimate credit...

Iphigenia in memoriam by Jean-Rene Lemoine concept, devising and performance by Dimitra Kreps

Iphigenia in memoriam ή 'στα φαγιούμ το βλέμμα είναι σώμα'

text: Iphigenie and In Memoriam by Jean-Rene Lemoine
concept, devising and performance by Dimitra Kreps


King Agamemnon boasts after killing Artemis’ deer. To appease the goddess’ wrath he must sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia. Only then the Greek ships will be allowed to sail to Troy to revenge Paris’ seduction of Helen. Iphigenia’s myth long after Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides has moved Goethe, Racine, Ritsos to name but a few. Comédie-Française and multiple-award winning actor, director, playwright Jean-René Lemoine revisits this archetypal myth to create his own harrowing nocturnal tale of love and loss, innocence and war, eros and thanatos. Fascinated by Fayoums, the funerary portraits whose gaze physicalises the dignity of sadness and the aristocracy of soul, Dimitra Kreps’ site-specific performance conceives Iphigenia as a Fayoum who for the first time breaks the silence of her gaze to tell a powerful story with volcanic subversion that transgresses time and place, life and death.
 

The performance blooded principally by Maria Callas’ music is an English premiere. Photography and lighting design by London-based artist Yannis Katsaris. 

Conceived as a site-specific exploration, it will set off in London (in a gem of a space - a Mayfair gallery) next Spring; it will then voyage through Greece and France. (venues and dates tbc). Unlike Odysseus who reached his Ithaca, Iphigenia's voyage goes on and peripatetic always sympotic (like a Diotima?) she will be sharing her sacrificial beauty of a story and touch in some amazing (archeological or relic or...) sites beyond her dreams, well beyond..."η ζωή είναι ένα όνειρο που βλέπει ο θάνατος" (life is a dream seen by death, Dimitris Dimitriadis)

I am deeply grateful to Jean-Rene for entrusting/endowing me with his beautiful writing. About the author: http://www.mc93.com/fr/biographie/jean-rene-lemoine

"Perhaps, the two of us, having found that there's no comfort in the
world,
perhaps, for that very reason, the two of us (though each in isolation)
may once more succeed in giving, and maybe getting, comfort." Ritsos' The return of Iphigenia
