PARTICIPATIVE READING OF OVID'S METAMORPHOSES

Please read the following announcement issued by the Festival Européen Latin Grec:

"Dear friends of Classics,

A few months ago the Festival Européen Latin Grec staged the first international participative reading of the Odyssey : on March 24th  2017 more than 5000 persons read one of the 24 books of Homer’s epic into 50 languages … in 27 countries ! Please click here to get a taste of it : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeRpeAmU5SJTbF2uZMoAWWA/videos

We look forward to having you as a contributor of the next event that will take place on March 23rd  2018 at 10 A.M. (Paris time) : on this special day Ovid’s Metamorphoses will be read in public at the same time all over the world !

If you are a teacher, a student, a bookseller, a librarian, a theatre-goer … or if you are simply convinced of the necessity to nurture the Humanities, please join us and share a few pages of Antiquity : all you need to do is to read aloud for one hour and let your audience discover the adventures of Daphne, Narcissus, Arachne, … or whoever you want !

To participate, you just have to organize a group of readers and choose a public space so that people can hear the reading of a complete book from Ovid’s Metamorphoses (or some extracts)  in the language of your choosing. And don’t forget to make sure your phone or camera is fully charged in order to make a great video of your performance !


Best wishes from the Festival Européen Latin Grec team !
