Démodocos – initiation

La DAC – en collaboration avec l’UFR de musicologie, l’UFR de grec et l’UFR de latin – vous propose un atelier «Démodocos» de théâtre et chœur de l’Antiquité. L’association Démodocos, composée d’étudiants, de professeurs et de professionnels, s’est donné pour mission depuis 1995 de valoriser par la pratique théâtrale la littérature de l’Antiquité. L’atelier est animé par Philippe Brunet (mise en scène) et François Cam (musique).

The workshop is a part of the GTA (Sorbonne's Antique Drama Group) initiated in 1935 by Roland Barthes and Jacques Veil; this group of students and teachers from the Sorbonne whom performed, for more than a quarter of a century, Antique plays (notably The Persians by Aeschylus). The students who already have experience in choir singing have the possibility to participate in the Antique choir of the Sorbonne under the supervision of François Cam, Hellenist and musicologist.

This initiative is led by two ambitions: bring Antique music and choir back to life through performances and offer further and unique musical training to singing, musician and musicologists students. Each year, voluntary students take part in the Antique drama festival of the Dionysies.
