About the Theatre Olympics
Conceptualized by Greek theatre director, Theodoros Terzopoulos in 1993, the idea was to gather together the best theatre practitioners from around the world and create a forum for exchange — of ideas, cultures, forms and practices. It was also to be another kind of exchange, between eras, trying to find a continuum between the past, present and future of theatre.
