Zeno’s Secret by Dr Edward Spence

Theatre / θέατρο

Presented by Festival Hellenika

Dr. Edward Spence (Hons, 1st Class) PhD (University of Sydney) Senior Lecturer (Ethics), School of Communication and Creative Industries

ZENO’S SECRET-stoic philosophy and the art of living


In the 3rd century BC Greek philosophers proposed ways of living a flourishing life for the attainment of happiness(eudaimonia) and tranquility (ataraxia). In this presentation Dr. Edward Spence examines the Stoics’ significance and relevance for the 21st century. His play ZENO’S SECRET explores dramatically their teaching on how to be happy in an unhappy world.

The presentation and play are followed by audience participation through discussion

George’s on Waymouth 20 Waymouth Street Adelaide SA


Georges on Waymouth & Byzantine Wine Merchants together with Festival Hellenika are very excited to announce a wine dinner like no other, exploring the history and indigenous grape varieties of Greece.

Join us for an unforgettable night of food, fun, wine and entertainment as we explore the unique terrior from one of the oldest wine making regions of the world. Think Santorini, and the queen of Greek white varieties, Assyrtiko! Or the black noble variety of Naoussa in Northern Greece, Xinomavro! Not forgetting the most widely planted red varietal, Agiorgitiko.

Stay tuned for more details as this will be an event not to be missed
