Elettra or the fall of the Masks

“Today like yesterday, theater is responsibility, awareness of civil, ethical, behavioral problems, commitment to personal choices that can be traumatic but which must be considered inescapable. Today as in the past, theater is the acquisition and governance of means of expression, the affirmation of human conquests, the exaltation of individual forces and of corporate needs. Today like yesterday, theater is freedom, a struggle to be architects of one’s own destiny, a search for the meaning of existence, the mediation of questions often destined to remain unanswered, a refusal to be oppressed, a disdain for oppression. “(Prof. Giusto Monaco)

The municipal administration of Santa Flavia, by virtue of its particular historical history that has its roots in classical antiquity and the presence in its territory of the extraordinary Solunto Archaeological Park, this year, as happened in previous years, has set up a series of events and actions starting from the staging, on the site itself, of some theatrical performances, inspired by classical drama.

If we add that in classical theater, especially in the Greek one, we find the archetypes of the social and cultural structures of the contemporary world, the motivation of the Municipal Administration of the choice to build a project that originates from the classical theater and to it is clear. returns even in the variety of initiatives that can be part of it.
