Ancient Agora of Athens—Odeion of Agrippa

Central to Athenian democracy and justice was the Agora, a place of assembly for its citizens. At the center of the Ancient Agora of Athens was the Odeion of Agrippa, an auditorium with the capacity to seat one thousand people. It was punctuated by large statues of the Giants and Tritons set on high pedestals, which stand today only as fragments: a torso, a gesture, a symbol. The artists of Prinz Gholam appropriate these ancient forms and write anew their history through orchestrating a movement score between the statues and their own bodies.
