We live in an era that most artistic sensibilities have been almost vanished. Art is easily consumed and being transformed into merchandises, while the artistic education suffers.

Fortunately, there are still a few resisting kernels, that deny surrendering to the dominant trends in art. One of those kernels is Theodoros Terzopoulos and Attis Theatre. In Terzopoulos’ theatre, tragedy is not just a shape anchored to a historical period and devoid of dynamism. On the contrary, it functions as a field, where contemporary concepts and conflicts are discussed and revealed.

This book approaches the directing and acting method of Theodoros Terzoppoulos and Attis Theatre as a sui generis research method in the contemporary chaotic cultural universe and helps us renew our ideas about tragedy, acting and direction.
