RODA’s announcement of the passing away of Peter Brook

Perhaps you are aware of the fact that this last Saturday, Peter Brook, the prominent theater director, passed away in Paris. He was 97 years of age.

For us, for the members of RODA Theatre, this is a strange coincidence.

Peter Brook died on this same week that we are staging here, today, Ramayana, the play that connected us with him in many ways.

It was his visit in Greece in 1985, when Peter Brook staged his play “Mahabharata” at the “Petra” Theater, that started our contact with him. During his stay in Athens, he visited repeatedly Mrs. Maria Peretzi and participated with the Gurdjieff Sacred Dances Class that she was teaching.

His brief stay with us, as he got personally involved in our Dance Classes, sharing many of his own theater exercises and discussing with us ideas about the “Theater of the Sacred” and about the Indian epics, became a source of inspiration for Mrs. Peretzi, both for the development of RODA Theater, as well as for the production of “Ramayana”, more specifically.

Mrs. Peretzi came to stage “Ramayana” in 1997, for the first time, as our contact with Mr. Brook continued over the years, in Athens and Paris.

This year, after all this time, RODA happened to stage Ramayana once again.

And this first performance of the play coincided with the announcement of his passing away.

RODA thus dedicates her Friday 08th Jul 2022 performance, the only one that takes place this summer, to Peter Brook’s memory, and we express the wish that his spirit, which remained young, luminous and tireless to the end, will forever inspire the world of Theatre, throughout the World.
