Dancing Homer

Via Sannion, links to a site of choreographers who attempt to reconstruct ancient Greek choral dance. (Scroll down for videos.)

Here dancers and drummers perform
while a rhapsode declaims the Catalog of Ships from the Iliad.

I suppose it's one of those interesting ideas that goes into the "But we'll never know for sure" file. (Or does it smell too much of the lamp?)
