In her lecture Dr. Amy R. Cohen, Professor of Classics and Theater at Randolph College, will look at both historical and contemporary use of masks to stage ancient Greek tragedy and comedy. Professor Cohen has developed a specialty in staging Greek drama in outdoor theaters with masks that she and her students have made. While Professor Cohen’s original exploration of masks sought to identify and recreate authentic-practices in ancient mask making, in recent years she and her students have begun to explore ways in which modern technology, such as 3-D printing, might assist in making masks for staging ancient plays. This event is co-sponsored with the CWRU Departments of Classics and Theater.
