Piraeus registration now open for Shakespeare in February!
“We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”
At Piraeus, St. John’s College welcomes alumni back to the seminar table. Held on both campuses and led by tutors, Piraeus seminars provide an opportunity to relive the rigorous classroom experience over the course of a leisurely weekend. Named for the port city that served Athens, Piraeus brings alumni from all career paths and geographical areas back to their educational roots. Said Thucydides of ancient Piraeus, "From all the lands, everything enters.” In that spirit, we invite you to bring your voice back to the seminar table and share in the reflection, discussion, and community that Piraeus offers.
This February, we’ll journey with the playful and masterful Rosalind, “the first modern lover” (according to Harold Bloom), to the forest of Arden, then endure the “rough magic” of Prospero on his isle. Each great play stands on its own, but the juxtaposition of these remarkable “comedies” may illuminate shared themes of love and marriage, of course, but also of usurpation and exile, justice and forgiveness, court and wilderness, and the magic of the theatrical. Participants will have a chance to take part in the opening weekend activities of the exhibition of First Folio: the Book that Gave Us Shakespeare at the New Mexico Museum of Art, a part of its national tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library.
