Dionysia

Each spring, CCW produces and performs an original translation of Greek tragedy or comedy during the traditional festival time for the Athenian "City Dionysia." Directors, choreographers, costumers, musicians, and actors from the Honors College and Houston community combine to create a performance steeped in research and creative development. Previous productions have included adaptations of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, Aeschylus’ Agamemnon, Euripides' Children of Herakles, Sophocles' Electra, and Aristophanes' The Frogs.

In 2014, Dionysia celebrated Homer's Odyssey and performances by bards and musicians took place all over Houston, from food trucks to farmers markets.
