Anthropos Celebrating our humanity.
Through the arts of theater and storytelling,
Anthropos (Άνθρωπος, the Greek word for human being) seeks to uphold and celebrate what is truly human. Having been developing for
many years, Anthropos received its name in 2010 to acknowledge the spirit of what Glen Williamson and his colleagues
present and the impulse to create and perform stories and plays of unusual scope and humanity.
