Department of Theatre Studies of the University of Patras is looking for partners for their large-scale cooperation project “A journey from the oral to the written word and vice versa: tradition, course, perspectives (c.o.a.l. > cοmmunication- orality-art- literature)” in the fields of theatre and literature for children and adults, and oral traditions.

Organisation: University of Patras

The Department of Theatre Studies of the University of Patras was founded in 1989 and it specializes in Ancient Greek and modern theatre. Apart from the theoretical orientation of its curriculum, which covers issues on ancient Greek theatre, history and theory of theatre, semiotics, performance, drama and shadow theatre, the Department offers also a series of courses, workshops on acting, directing, devising, playwriting, music, and theatre didactics.

Project: c.o.a.l. > cοmmunication- orality-art- literature

The main goal of the project is to reintroduce orality (art of speech /oral tradition) as a form of art in the everyday activities of everyone (pupils, students, teachers and generally adults in all levels and stages of education) from kindergarten to lifelong learning. The project will develop on the fields of:
– research;
– collection and production of oral material (esp. traditional folktales, poetry, songs, myths etc.);
– classes;
– e-platform;
– radio productions and performances for adults and children;
– exchanges, travels and conferences (all the partners) all the above in relation to the oral tradition of the Greek language and the language of every participant partner /country.
