  synopsis

A documentary on the performance of Euripides "BACCHAE" presented by:
ATTIS theater The theater group ATTIS was created in Greece in 1986 by the acclaimed Greek theater director Theodoros Terzopoulos.

Their first performance ,a contemporary interpretation of Euripides' BACCHAE, was presented in Delphi in 1986 and has since been performed, in over 50 venues around the world.
Theodoros Terzopoulos has a very particular approach in his directing and training his actors.
This particular performance is based on body language.

He believes that the ancient memories are written in the body and it is this language that he revives demanding from his actors what he knows is possible. Using what he calls biodynamic code of expression, he achieves a very impressive result which also enables a foreign audience to explore the essence of ancient Greek tragedy.

The documentary "The Journey of Dionysos" explores Terzopoulos method of work from the very basic training methods  down to the final performance.

The theater experts: Marianne Mac Donald (USA), Francoise Ghiron Bistagne (France), Umberto Albini (Italy), Suares Awasti (India), Pierre Petrides (Ethiopia), situate Terzopoulos' approach in the contemporary theater scene.

The documentary offers the main and most important sequences of  the play as it was presented in several performances around the world. Euripides BACCHAE - by ATTIS theater
