A strophe, or turn, is a stanza in which the entire chorus moves toward the altar in one direction. When performing the antistrophe, the chorus moves back the other way, retracing their exact steps until they reach their original position.

The choragus would be a member of the chorus, who can interact with the other characters and become a part of the play.
