Featured Review – Ancient Dramatic Chorus through the Eyes of a Modern Choreographer: Zouzou Nikoloudi

At Cambridge Scholars we see first-hand the time and effort that goes into our authors’ books, and we are proud that many of our publications are critically acclaimed by eminent scholars working at their forefront of their fields. Praise for our authors appears in the very best scholarly journals, and this month we would like to highlight an especially striking review.

We are delighted to share Ioannis M. Konstantakos’ review of Katia Savrami’s Ancient Dramatic Chorus through the Eyes of a Modern Choreographer: Zouzou Nikoloudi, published in The Classical Journal. Konstantakos is Associate Professor at the University of Athens, where he teaches, researches, and writes about Greek literature and culture. He described the book as offering “a wealth of pragmatic information and penetrating analyses”:

“Savrami’s book is the first substantial monograph to be published on Nikoloudi’s oeuvre […] It is a first-rate contribution to the study of the modern reception of ancient theatre, valuable for classical scholars, drama critics, and artists alike. Above all, it is a reminder of the cardinal importance of music and dance for the emotional effect of an ancient play. Directors of the avant-garde should take particular heed of it.”

–Ioannis M. Konstantakos, Associate Professor at the University of Athens
