An amazing initiative for the Greek plays!
The Greek Play Project (GPP) is a dynamic promotional platform, a network of collaborations and activities, and an open space for information and exchange of ideas. GPP's aim is to give prominence to the modern Greek dramaturgy, contribute to its promotion - for which notable efforts are have already been made -, and encourage discussion and action around it. With a group of 42 active playwrights as starting point, this bilingual site (in English and Greek) is a first attempt to a map of the theatrical landscape as it is currently being formed, while there will also be constant updating and expansion.
Every playwright's Profile includes a biographical note, summaries for his/her plays, and an original essay on his/her dramaturgy written especially for The Greek Play Project by prominent theatre professors, leading theatre critics and dramaturgs. A team of dramaturgs - journalists will be covering current events and any relevant notable action with interviews, viewpoints, news and information on the production of Greek plays.
The landscape of Greece's attempt to redefine itself is also reflected through photography, by the artists of the Casablanca group who were invited to give their own perspective to The Greek Play Project.
The Creator and Head of the Greek Play Project is the dramaturg and theatre critic Irene Mountraki.
