The Return of Dionysus – Theodore Terzopulos’ book available in Hungarian

On 16 April, at 20:30, after the Attis Theatre’s performance of “Nora”, there will be a public meeting with the author of Theodore Terzopulos’ book The Return of Dionysus.

Theodoros Terzopoulos: The Return of Dionysus

Theodoros Terzopoulos, the world-renowned Greek director and President of the International Theatre Olympics Committee, founded the Attis Theatre in 1985. His company’s first production was The Bacchantes in 1986. It was during the creation of this production that a particular working method evolved, which already contained the key elements of Terzopulos’ artistic credo. His book The Return of Dionysus, published in 2015, is an illustrative and thorough account of the training method developed by the director and his actors.

In presenting a Workshop that abounds in discoveries, he focuses on elementary concepts such as “breath”, “energy” and “time”, which for Terzopoulos are the cornerstones of the actor’s physical and scenic presence. Focusing on practical work and rehearsals above all, he introduces the reader to his unique method of actor training.

The forty self-awareness exercises discussed in detail are an important guide, especially for the younger generation of actors. This book, already published in many languages, will soon be available in Hungarian, translated by András Kozma and published by the SZFE.
