“In “The Return of Dionysus” the famous Greek director Theodoros Terzopoulos describes the basics of his theatrical work: the rebirth of modern theater from spirit of body work. The reflection of elemental terms such as “breath”, “energy” or “time” in relation to physical and scenic presence of the actor build the center of his unique method of actor training”.
