Introducing ITDP: Odyssey (ages 26+)
July 12-29, 2022
INTERNATIONAL THEATRE & DANCE PROJECT is excited to announce our newest program. ITDP: Odyssey is an 18- day program geared toward travelers and theatre enthusiasts of all backgrounds and experiences ages 26+.
July 12-16, 2021: Cultural Immersion
These four days are about building community within our group of participants and forging an understanding of Greece's relationship with theatre, its culture, and its ancient and modern theatre practices.
Participants will meet in Voula (the Athenian Riviera) to attend an orientation dinner to become acquainted with peers and teaching artists, climb Acropolis Hill and discover its theatres and slopes, and watch the sunset over the Temple of Poseidon. Greek Folk Dancing Workshops and Ancient Greek Theatre Theory Seminars will inform our attendants' experience at traditional Greek dance and theatre performances. These performances will be followed by in-class discussions about the philosophies and theatre practices of the Ancient Greek Civilization.
There will be a recreation day on Sunday, July 17th. Participants may make their own plans on this day, or participate in a recreational activity suggested by ITDP.
July 18-21, 2021: Greek Theatre
These four days allow participants to dive deeply into Ancient & Modern Greek Theatre and storytelling mediums.
Daily classes at our Voula Studio include Ancient Greek Choro Drama, Ancient Greek Dance, Ancient Greek Scene Study & Philosophy, Greek Film Study. These classes will include lecture, discussion, and acting/movement components.
On Friday, July 19th, the group will travel by bus and ferry to the stunning island of Zakynthos for the duration of the program.
July 23-29, 2021: Beyond Greek Theatre
Our time in Zakynthos will begin with two recreation days on this beautiful island. During these days, participants may make their own plans to explore the island or participate in an activity suggested by ITDP, such as visiting the famous Shipwreck Beach.
Daily Classes at our Zakynthos Studio will include Improvisation & Contemporary Theatre, Laban Movement for the Actor, Musical Theatre Dance & Ballet. Participants of all levels of theatre experience are welcome!
