New Acropolis wins awards at the Theater Festival in Venezuela
The ‘Aeschylus’ theater group of New Acropolis in Mérida received the second prize in the 31st student Festival, for its staging of the work Dialoguing with the Minotaur.
This festival brought together 53 works of theater from different educational institutions of the country, and was held at the Teatro Cesar Rengifo of the Universidad de Los Andes and the auditorium of the Colegio Inmaculada.
In addition to this prize, the New Acropolis group received the best male actor and best decor awards.
The work is a modern adaptation of the myth, where the Minotaur governs through materialism, and devours dreams, honor, and the hope of young people.
Only an enlightened man becomes aware of this reality, but it is not enough to understand the problem, one must have the courage to face it.
The work is intended for all of us to recognize the Theseus we have within us and our power to face the Minotaur.
