Plato’s Symposium

Our small student production of Plato’s Symposium, in particular the dialogue between Diotima & Socrates and Diotima’s Speech. We pre-recorded the readings of the text and then played the voices the day of, with the performers wearing theater masks for the Greek Chorus, Socrates, and Diotima. Here is the video and audio that projected silhouettes of the party as the background. Missing only the performances on stage by the Greek Chorus’, Socrates’s and Diotima’s belly dancing. Thanks to all those who participated and helped.
