The Daily Tar Heel reports on The Greek Tragedy in the Community project, being spear-headed by Michael Vazques (Philosophy/Parr Center) and artistically directed by Kari Lindquist (PhD candidate in Music). A collaboration with Maynard Adams Fellow Kari Lindquist, Department of Music, and Professor Al Duncan, Department of Classics at UNC-CH, and the Parr Center for Ethics offers an on campus- and community-based programming around ancient tragedy. This unique project includes reading groups and community offerings—such as “Coffee with Alcestis,” to supplement performances by exploring the themes in the Alcestis.

Events include an introductory lecture by Al Duncan on the historical and mythological context of the Alcestis at FlyLeaf Books Monday March 4 at 5:30pm, as well as a number of other scheduled activities during the month of March. A staged reading of scenes from the play, will be held in Person Hall (Music Department, on McCorkle Place) at 7:30pm on April 8. Full details may be found at the project’s website.
