Visual Resources – Staging the Eumenides

1 i) If you look at the ancient vase paintings you eill see subtle evidence that shows the vases depict the greek myth as opposed to the myth-influence play.

In this vase painting you will see woman ; woman would not have been part of the male orientated Thetare Dionysos in ancient greece. Moreover the nakedness and the depiction of snakes would not be conducive to an ancient greek play.

  1. You sure about the nakedness? I thought you were an advocate of it? Oil on the brain.

  2. 1. Greeks did many things naked, wouldn't surprise me if now and again they did plays naked too.

    2. Men would have played female parts, but if you were painting a picture of a play, why would you actually paint a man in a female part? You wouldn't, you'd paint them as females.
