Johanna Hanink (Brown): What exactly is reperformance, and what might it mean for classicists?

From Abramović to Aeschylus, reperformance seems to be is in the air these days. But what exactly does the 're' in reperformance mean? What could it, or should it mean, especially for classicists? This paper considers some modern thinking ideas reperformance, and reconsiders some cases of reperformance of Greek drama in antiquity.
Johanna Hanink joined the Department of Classics in 2010, after completing her PhD at Queens' College, Cambridge. Before arriving in Cambridge she had studied Classics at the University of Michigan (B.A.) and the University of California, Berkeley (M.A.); she has also spent time as a visitor at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Her work focuses on ancient theater and performance, the cultural life of classical Athens, and the reception of the idea of the "Athenian miracle."
