In 2016, the National Theatre of Greece set up the International Workshop on Ancient Drama. The workshop is run under the auspices and with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Sport, and is part of the ministry’s Ancient Drama Network.

The intensive two-week workshop takes place every summer on a specific topic drawn from ancient drama. The workshop is intended for young theatre professionals from Greece and abroad, including actors with at least two years’ experience, directors, set designers, costume designers, choreographers and other theatre creatives, who want to deepen their study of ancient drama through in-depth focus with a practical foundation.

Those taking part in the workshop acquire specialist knowledge of ancient drama, while at the same time having the opportunity to work and live together, sharing their experiences, knowledge and skills in a creative environment.

Daily sessions include voice and body exercises, analysis and study, and acting. At the same time, additional educational activities are organised, which include visiting the ancient site and the Museum, and attending performances of major works of ancient drama, lectures,masterclasses, etc.
