A group of students from the performing arts school has again been invited by the University of Theatre Arts in Moscow, with the support of the Presidential Grant Fund, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation and the Moscow Culture Department, to take part in the festival that runs from May 27 to June 6.
The festival seeks to examine how Performing Arts Colleges in BRICS countries explore typically Eurocentric styles of theatre while maintaining cultural relevance and resonance.
This year the festival topic is Greek Theatre and the chosen text is Oedipus Rex. All participants are required to prepare extracts from the text for performance.
The Waterfront Theatre School is focusing on the choral scenes in Oedipus Rex.
