The spirit of ancient Greek theatre

London-based Thiasos was founded in 1997 by a group of academics and theatre professionals. Our mission has been to put music, dance, colour and spectacle back at the centre of Greek tragedy and comedy -- where it always was, in fact, for the ancients themselves.
Above all we are trying to prove two things: first, that a singing and dancing chorus is an essential part of any ancient Greek play; and second, that we can learn valuable lessons about the essence of Greek drama from theatrical traditions of other world cultures.

"An innovative and richly talented company, deeply committed to the value, power and presence of their Greek originals." Prof. Michael Silk

"Wonderful, rhythmic productions, exquisitely choreographed and with just the blend of seriousness and fun that a good evening out demands. Don't miss them!" Jeannie Cohen, Friends of Classics
