The Hellenic Cosmos Cultural Center is hosting British theater director Peter Brook’s “Battlefield” in a series of performances taking place at its Theatron venue on October 17-20. The production, penned and directed by Brook and Marie-Helene Estienne, is based on “Mahabharata,” a play written by Jean-Claude Carriere and directed by Brook some 30 years ago. (The original Mahabharata is one of ancient India’s two major Sanskrit epics.) The cast features Carole Karemera, Jared McNeill, Ery Nzaramba and Sean O’Callaghan, with live music performed by Toshi Tsuchitori. “Battlefield” is produced by the Attiki Cultural Society. Shows take place at 9 p.m. in English with Greek supertitles. Prices for tickets range from 10 to 50 euros.
