The Centro Studi sul Teatro Classico (Center for Studies on Classic Theatre) has scheduled for 30th November-1th December 2017 its first academic conference for young researchers, Ph.D. students and Professors of Humanities.
The conference The Forgotten Theater aims at revitalizing the scientific interest in dramatic Greek and Latin texts, both transmitted and fragmentary, wich have been long confined in restricted areas of scientific research and limited to few modern staging. The conference will host academics (philologists, scholars in history of theater) and exponents of the theatrical world (directors, screenwriters) who want willing to contribute in throwing a new light on the forgotten theater through their studies, reflections and experiences.

Themes discussed
Criticism, commentary, and constitutio textus of complete and fragmentary texts (comedy and tragedy);
Reasonable attemps of reconstructions of incomplete tetralogies;
Research on theater plots known for indirect tradition;
Developments of theatrical plot between the Greek and Latin world;
The influence of foreign theater traditions on the Greek and Roman theater;
The influence of other forms of camouflage art (dance, mime) on the development of the Greek and Latin theatre;
New scenographic considerations based on the testimonies of internal captions, marginalia and scholia to the texts;
New proposals for modern staging of ancient dramatic texts;
Medieval, humanistic, modern and contemporary traditions of ancient drama.
