With the participation of Jeanne Bresciani and the Isadora Duncan Institute, Delphi will host eight days devoted to the arts. After seeing Bresciani and her highly-trained troupe of professional dancers perform, the mayor of Delphi had an epiphany. "I've waited 2,500 years for the Muse to return, and She has come," he commented. Special room rates and packages are offered by the town, and public presentations will be offered at unusual sacred sites generally kept off-limits. This is one event that should appeal to almost everybody - ardent Grecophiles, New Age goddess worshippers, ancient history buffs, dance and arts aficionados, those who love the geography of Greece - and your average day tripper wandering over from Athens.
There's an old saying "The time, the place, the people". This looks to combine all of them against the perfect proportions of the ancient oracle site of Delphi.
Accomodations: The Town of Delphi is providing a range of accommodations and meal plans for program participants. Students, scholars and artists from all disciplines are invited to be a part of this mythic event. Attendees will be able to choose from a variety of intensive experiential workshops in the art of dance, music and poetry. There will also be presentations by scholars on various aspects of Delphi and its history and mythology.
