“Hellas in Bloom: Creative Greece”
Vasilis Papavasiliou talks about Theater with Platon Mavromoustakos
The period from the end of the 19th century to the 1930s was a pivotal time for the way in which theatrical ideas were brought to the stage in the young Greek state. Using this temporal demarcation, we will talk about the human capital of the intellectual heritage of the modern Greek state: the protagonists who assumed this new role in theater, that of the theater director, which became in modernity the art that brought the theater into the 21st century. In this respect, the newly founded modern Greek state fell into step with European modernity, which brought about the birth of the modern-day theater director in the 1880s.
