Anatoli Vassiliev at the Athens/Epidaurus Festival

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Anatoly Vassilief leaded a cast of Greek actors in a production of the Municipal and Regional Theatre of Patras, presenting for the first time “Medea” by Euripides at the Epidaurus Ancient Theatre on the 15 & 16 August 2008, following his production of Heiner Müller’s “Medea Material”. The Russian master has tackled two issues with one shot here:
• Condemning male infidelity and the unequal treatment meted out to woman
• Delivering a poetic text without resorting to verbal and emotional stereotypes.

Prague culture wars

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

A series of protests by the Czech artists and intellectuals has been successful in changing the city’s cultural policy. Milan Richter, Councilor for Culture and Tourism, had the contentious idea of subsidizing the city’s theatres based upon the number of tickets they sell. But the system, introduced in November 2007, led to a minor rebellion in the Czech arts world. Non-commercial theatres, art galleries and others complained they would go out of business within months if starved of state grants. A petition followed signed by 30,000 people, public demonstrations and even a raucous sit in at Prague City Hall.
