Трагедия Еврипида «Алкеста» на древнегреческом с попутным английским переводом и примечаниями. «Алкеста» была поставлена на Великие Дионисии в 438 г. до нашей эры м в составе тетралогии, в которую входили несохранившиеся трагедии «Критянки», «Алкмеон в Псофнде» и «Телеф». Поскольку «Алкеста» занимала здесь четвертое место, обычно отводимое для драмы сатиров, некоторые исследователи стремятся найти в этой драме юмористические или даже бурлескные ситуации, но такие попытки едва ли основательны: бытовой элемент, несомненно присутствующий в образе Ферета, обрисованного не без доли иронии, в принципе не отличает его существенно хотя бы от кормилицы в «Ипполите», а в этой трагедии никто не станет искать черты драмы сатиров.

Working with a partner or a group of three, take turns role-playing this conversation. 2. Re-read the thumbnail descriptions of applied theatre practices (pp. 1–6). Which of these types of applied theatre most draws your interest? What is it that attracts you to this particular form? 1 How do we make applied theatre? Facilitation As in so much of applied theatre, there are a number of terms for those who work in theatre with communities—teaching artist, director, co-creator, artistic assistant, Joker (Boal’s term) and so on—but “facilitator” seems to be the most common and, in terms of its original meaning (“to make easy”), the most appropriate.

Borovia is gradually discerned as a sum and unity of opposites: The Tailor: A man who is highly skilled, and proud to make the jacket for the Prince. He came to Borovia many, many years ago.

2. Aesthetics: These are the qualities of an artistic work that we can identify and value. For example, how does a performance engage our multiple senses (hearing, sight, touch, smell and taste), exhibit moments of beauty, harmony, metaphor/symbol, recognition and surprise and use the elements of theatre (focus, tension, sight/sound, dark/light, movement/stillness [Wagner, 1976, p. 148–158])? In what ways do the contexts of any given applied theatre project directly affect the aesthetic/artistic choices made by participants and the values generated from the work by audiences?
