An international co-production of four theatre companies from four countries on the situation of democracy in Europe.
The “CHORUS PROJECT Graz 2020” is the extension of a “Creative Europe Culture” project by Theater am Lend in collaboration with the Upstart Theatre Birmingham-London, the MKC Youth Cultural Center in Skopje and the Pathos Theater Munich.
Based on Aeschylus’s Oresteia, the companies reconstruct the original satyr play in their own country, developing three contemporary plays. Each of the plays will be created in a collaboration of professional and non-professional artists. In addition, there will be a series of workshops and interventions on the core themes of the project.
The Graz portion of the project examines the history of the city in the regional context, culminating in the five-day, international CHORUS FESTIVAL in Graz.
