In celebration of Kore 670, a stunning archaic Greek statue now on view in Gallery 213, see live performances by Emerson College students and area high school students adapting excerpts from ancient Greek tragedies. From Elektra and Antigone to Cassandra and Iphigenia, women featured prominently in ancient Greek theater, yet their roles were performed by men. In three 20-minute performances, students studying theater actively disrupt that traditional practice, revealing how gender bias—both in the ancient world and now—is hardly a new concept. 

No advance registration or ticket is needed. Space is limited; first come, first served.
