Join us in A Material Legacy to explore the world of Dionysos and The Bacchae, the inspiration for Elliott Hundley’s eyes that run like leaping fire (2011). This ancient tragedy written by Euripides (5th century BCE) culminates in the discovery that Agave, mother of Pentheus, the king of Thebes, has murdered her son while she was under the influence of the god Dionysos. With professor Peter Burian, professor emeritus of Classical Studies and an expert in Greek drama and its reception through the ages.
Cash bar & reception at 4:30 PM.
