This book examines the performance of Greek tragedy in the classical Athenian theatre. Whilst post-structuralist criticism of Greek tragedy has tended to focus on the literary text, the analysis of stagecraft has been markedly conservative in its methodology. David Wiles corrects that balance, examining the performance of tragedy as a spatial practice specific to Athenian culture, at once religious and political. The reader or practitioner of today must recognize that Athenian conceptions of space were quite unlike those of the modern world. After examining controversies and archaeological data regarding the fifth-century performance space, Wiles turns to the chorus and shows how dance mapped out the space for purposes of any given play. Through an examination of contemporary material, including vase paintings and altars, as well as the structure of extant theatres, he shows how the performance as a whole was organized in respect of axes embodying oppositions such as inside and outside, east and west, above and below. The audience was both outside the performance and embraced as part of it; we as readers are brought closer to understanding the dramatic action and staging of classical Athens.
