Event description

Description

Do What You Must

after Thucydides

The strong do what they want and the weak just have to suck it up. Right?

But who is who?

For centuries, the People In Power have used Thucydides' Melian Dialogue to justify their self-serving belief that might makes right. But what if they've been reading it wrong?

This dramatic interrogation and repurposing of The Melian Dialogue is conceived to challenge the way we think about power, responsibility and justice.

The work-in-development performance will be followed by a free panel discussion with Professor Neville Morley (University of Exeter), Professor Edith Hall (King's College London) and Dr Emma Cole (University of Bristol).

Do What You Must is an Arch 468 collaboration with fanSHEN and Exeter University. Funded by the AHRC.
