In this supplement-lesson students learn to visualize and choreograph Greek dance by following the rhythms and textual cues of strophe/antistrophe in Antigone. In the lesson they compare the rhythms and text of the 2nd (“Ode to Man”) and 5th odes of Antigone, identify connections and contrasts and then choreograph the “Ode to Man” using symmetrical, mimetic movements (Aristotle has told us that Greek dramatic dance was mimetic, mirroring the text.)
