antigone lives*

an unfaithful re-telling of Sophicles' original.

this is a rave-performance combining techno, despair, and family politics in a 200 bpm exploration of the carcass of democracy and notions of revolution. there's also a goat and a pack of jackals attempting to navigate the growing crisis of displaced peoples in our *global village*.

the world premiere was commissioned by Residenztheatre in munich, germany and directed by rikki henry.

antigone lives* also took calgary by storm in a production helmed by christine brubaker at school of creative and performing arts at university of calgary
