A performance based on DIMITRIS RONTIRIS’ method.
“A tragedy is the imitation of an action that is serious and also, as having magnitude, complete in itself; in appropriate and pleasurable language;… in a dramatic rather than narrative form; with incidents arousing pity and fear, wherewith to accomplish a catharsis of these emotions.”Aristotle’s Definition of Tragedy Ancient drama is the strong dynamic that anyone can use in order to express and outline various conditions of a society such as a crisis and decay. The tragedy “Electra” was written at the time of Peloponnesian war and represents a story taken from the Myth of Atrides. Through this tragedy a question rises: in a society that corruption and injustice reign what can anyone do? Is the acceptance the best solution? Sophocles’ heroine Electra screams against prejudice and states her opposition.
