Thespis was the legendary originator of Greek tragedy. This is an abstract sculpture of a reclining human figure representing Thespis, who was reputed to be the first person ever to appear on stage as an actor in a leading role rather than as part of a chorus.
Originally funded through the Australian Government through the National Capital Development Authority for the new Canberra Theatre Centre. This work was relocated in 2006 to the refurbished foyer of the Canberra Theatre Centre.
