antigone lives* is an unfaithful re-telling of Sophicles’ original. It’s more like a rave than a play and combines 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”. Originally commissioned by Residenztheatre as a part of “WELT/BÜHNE” 2018 Festival of international new works in Munich, Germany.
