Classical Studies Program presents

A Bard Ancient Studies Symposium Event

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

[A Bard Ancient Studies Symposium Event]
Kassandra:
a presentation and discussion with Jean Wagner

Bard College artist-in-residence Jean Wagner has recently written and directed a stage adaptation of the novel Kassandra by the East German writer Christa Wolf.  Wagner, together with actors involved in the project, will present scenes from the performance (both live and on video) and will discuss this ambitious and complex adaptation of a work that is itself a radical re-imagining of the story—recounted by Homer, Aeschylus, Euripides, Virgil, and others—of the Trojan princess who is
blessed and cursed with the ability to see what others can’t.
(Refreshments served!)
