On May 11, 2011, the performance of Aeschylus’s Prometheus Unbound premiered on OMA‘s (Office for Metropolitan Architecture) stage set for the Greek Theatre in Syracuse, Sicily.  The design consists of three transformable architectural devices that can be reinterpreted among the different spaces of the theater.  These devices date back to 5th century BCE. More after the break.
