Antigone (Lithuania, 50') - International Monodrama Festival

Wednesday, 25th October 2017. 21:00

Antigone (Lithuania, 50’)
Inspired by the ancient tragedy of Sophocles, the performance explores ways of connecting the ancient and modern language, juxtaposing human figures in front of sequences of video images of the Chorus. Birute Mar transforms into Antigone, then to her sister Ismene, to Creon, and his son Haemon, to a guard and to the prophet Tiresias. The fragile human body on stage and the great projections of the Chorus are accompanied by music and text.

Script/direction: Birute Mar
Video: Andrious Jakucionis & Antanas Kucinskas
Set: Jolanta Rimkute
Performed by: Birute Mar
Ages: 10+
In lithuanian with greek and english surtitles
