We reconstruct the beginning of the parodos of froggs, with Cécile Corbel-Morana’s works (Le bestiaire d’Aristophane), Philippe Brunet’s record (we used it to learn how say the text) but with original hypotheses : the choir sings and dances at the same time, with a plaster mask (we made it) even if we run out of breath when we dance; the choreography uses the metric of the text and translate it in two rhythms (2/4 and 6/8); It is different than Germaine Prudhommeau’s reconstruction, too much inspired by ballet, and it uses sometimes the kômos gestures because the froggs say in 215-218 that they sing a kômos for Dionysos Nyseios.
