Theatre of Dionysus:skenes

Theatre of Dionysus

Phlyakes stage

The Lycurgan period staging means that only one set can be used at all times as it is a stone structure whereas the Phylakes skene can be modified, rebuilt and painted acording to the needs of each play. However the stone skene means that the actors can interact with it, move around it and use it to create a layered stage.

  • It would be difficult to change scenes with either of these skenes. The Phylakes stage would need to be painted, moved or turned around; the scenery of the stone stage could not be changed however and so removable things such as material would need to be used to indicate a change of scene (or props).
